Burp 2: Scan Next

Andrej | Last updated: Jan 17, 2020 03:37PM UTC

Hi, I noticed that "Scan next" is no longer there with Burp 2.1.07. Would it be possible to add it, or some similar Priority-based handling of Items in the Scan Queue?

In Burp 2, we moved to a task-based approach. This allows for faster processing times. Unfortunately, this means that you are unable to set priorities for individual queue items. You can, however, select the items that you would like audited and scan them as specific URLs (https://portswigger.net/blog/burp-2-0-how-do-i-scan-individual-items). Having multiple, parallel tasks allows you to optimize scans for different purposes, as well as prioritize where you want to use your resources (https://portswigger.net/blog/multiple-parallel-scans).
