API to modify configuration of scanner via extension

It would be very useful to have API to modify the configuration of the scanner via an extension to run specific active scan with custom configuration (like run scan without cookie etc).

You can easily do this (and change the configuration of any Burp tool) via the loadConfigFromJson() API: https://portswigger.net/burp/extender/api/burp/IBurpExtenderCallbacks.html#loadConfigFromJson(java.lang.String) The easiest approach is to manually create the desired configuration in the Burp UI, save a JSON snippet via the options button for the relevant panel, and copy the JSON string into your code.

Hi, as always thank you for your prompt reply. I had checked on the API docs but I didn't saw that option. New plugin will come in some weeks ;) Maurizio PS: if in the future you will come near Turin (Italy) let me know, some beers are waiting for you.
