Burp Enterprise unattended install -- what is the administrator password?

John Gordon Sep 13, 2019 11:04PM UTC

When doing an unattended install from a response file generated by a previous install, e.g. `./ -q -varfile response.varfile`, what's the administrator password set to? The password from the previous installation is not saved to response.varfile.

Hi, when you install Burp Suite Enterprise you are required to specify the credentials for the administrator account, we don’t have any default values for this.

You can create a new administrator by running a utility that should be in the installation directory called ‘adminusercreator’. An example of how to run it is:

adminusercreator —username=new_admin —password=letmein — —dbUrl=jdbc:<your database url> —dbUsername=burp_enterprise —dbPassword=*

What's the dbUrl format if you chose the file-based internal database?

Figured it out, I had to stop the burpsuiteenterpriseedition_db service then use:

adminusercreator --username=administrator --password=newpassword --dbUrl=jdbc:h2:/var/lib/BurpSuiteEnterpriseEdition/data/burpsuiteenterpriseedition_db --dbUsername=burp_enterprise --dbPassword=[redacted]

(where dbPassword was found in /opt/burpsuite_enterprise/database/init.sql)
