Too many duplicate requests generated by Burp Enterprise while scanning

Chandraveer Kumar Dec 06, 2018 08:05AM UTC

I am scanning a site using Burp Enterprise. Checking the logs of request and response in Logger++ using an upstream proxy, I observed that there are a huge number of duplicate requests are being made; and thus increasing the total time duration of a scan.
These requests differ only differ in JSESSIONID.
Can I avoid this? if yes- how?

Burp sends these requests to assess the stability to target URLs. This helps us cope with stateful apps that will return different responses to different JSESSIONID values.

There isn’t a way to disable this behavior.
