Scope manipulation API

dnet Jan 22, 2019 08:45AM UTC

Methods IBurpExtenderCallbacks.{includeIn,excludeFrom}Scope make it possible to add/remove a specific URL to/from the scope. Is there a way to use these or any other API call to perform actions like those available on the GUI, such as specifying regular expressions for the path, ignoring the protocol and/or port, etc.?

You can use loadConfigFromJson() to configure an advanced scope.

What I recommend you do is set up a scope you want in the GUI and use the cog button to save this as JSON. Paste this JSON as a string in your extension source code, and use loadConfigFromJson() to apply it. When you’ve got that working, you can try changing the JSON string within the code to set a dynamic scope.

If you want to do more advanced things with loadConfigFromJson, there’s some interesting code here:
