Burp Search Function does not show original and edited Request

Franz Jan 15, 2020 09:28AM UTC

When using Burp's search functionality, the results only contain a request and response pair for each result item.

However, it may be the case that there is an original request as well as an edited request (e.g., as a result of proxy rule modifications).

Ideally, Burp should display for each result item both the original request and the edited request.

Hi Franz,

I have raised this as a feature request. You are right that the search function only displays the edited request and response. However, there are a few workarounds – you can see the Original request, Edited request, and response under Proxy > HTTP history. Also, if you are searching for a specific request, you can use the Filter to Filter by search term.

Let me know if you need further assistance with this.
