How to run active scan from burp command line for burp 2.1

karun guduru Nov 14, 2019 10:15AM UTC

I am taking help of headless burp extension and running the below command
java -jar -Xmx1g -Djava.awt.headless=true "C:\Program Files\BurpSuitePro\burpsuite_pro.jar" --project-file=project.burp -c config.xml
but this will only triggers crawl it does not perform crawl and audit.
Please could you let me know how to perform both crawl and audit.

Have you tried using the new REST API:


The extension does let you run scans straight from the command line, but it doesn’t utilize all of the new Burp 2 features. If you do want to use the extension, you could try contacting the authors.
