Basic Auth: 1 Position, but should be two?

I am following some guides and it says for basic auth to select the hash and then use a colon as thew position seperator/select Base64 etc. I am confused as there should be two positions? For the username list and password list it is one thing I select and they want me to enter two positions? Its https and I have the CA etc. GET /cgi-bin/webif/system-info.sh HTTP/1.1 Host: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:60.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/60.0 Accept: text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,*/*;q=0.8 Accept-Language: en-US,en;q=0.5 Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate Cookie: style=null Authorization: Basic §YWRtaW46Rm9ydGlzYm95byE=§ Connection: §close§ Upgrade-Insecure-Requests: §1§ For Basic §YWRtaW46Rm9ydGlzYm95byE=§ I want to use admin/passwordlist, but isn't that just one position? The position two and three, would be open and 0? I just entered them for fun, but should that be done as well? Any guidance should help. Many thanks!

Hi, can you clarify that your question is regarding the Intruder component within Burp Suite? If so, have you seen our guide on using Burp Intruder? https://portswigger.net/burp/documentation/desktop/tools/intruder/using
