Burp API

Ihor Nov 11, 2019 03:06PM UTC

Hi, team! I want to automate BurpSuite scans using burp's REST API ( but receive errors when sending requests to start the scan. I run burp in headless mode.

My request looks like below:
curl -X POST<my_api_token_here>/v0.1/scan -d '{"scan_configurations":[{"config":"my-config","type":"CustomConfiguration"}],"scope":{"include":[{"rule":"http?.*localhost:3000.*"}],"type":"SimpleScope"},"urls":["http://localhost:3000/search"]}'

Every time I send this request to the Burp I receive this error: {"type":"ClientError","error":"Not all seed URLs are in scope"}

Thanks in advance! P.S. Are there any references to request examples?
