Generate cookie/session per request - Intruder

Bryan Mar 02, 2017 03:15PM UTC

Hi, guys.
I'd like to know how to configure intruder to generate a new cookie and session per request.
I'm facing a problem when I try to make a request because my target session expires very quickly and I can't make multiple requests on the same session using the same cookie.
Thanks in advance.

Hi Bryan

Thanks for your message.

Have you tired using Burp’s session handling rules?


The simplest way would be to create a macro that establishes a fresh session, make a session rule to run that macro before each relevant Intruder requests, and use a single attack thread.

Alternatively, a more complex approach would be to make a rule to test for session validity and recover if needed.

Please let us know if you need any further assistance.
