Automated scanning

Hridyadas | Last updated: Mar 07, 2023 07:29AM UTC

If an automated scanning is doing, do I need to interact with web pages to load Rest APIs to Burp or will Burp crawl through each and every Web API automatically?

Hi Hridya, To confirm, are you referring to crawling web pages or specifically scanning APIs? If you are referring to crawling a site then yes, Burp will automatically attempt to identify content by navigating around the target application (by clicking links, submitting forms etc).
