Venom | Last updated: Jun 28, 2019 01:06PM UTC

Hello, I'm not sure am i doing something wrong or why Crawl scan is not working? After i configured settings and started it, it says "Crawl finished." under dashboard. Other thing i noticed that under "Proxy" and "Intercept" there is "Intercept is Ofl" not "Off". Best regards

Do you see any errors in the Event log? If you manually browse the site does the Target > Site map populate?

No errors in Event log. Yes manually everything works perfectly.

Sorry, I didn't notice that you're using the Community Edition. Burp Crawler is part of Burp Suite Professional.

Ohh, allright. So in the ver. 2 in Community version there is spider function gone too or is there anything similar to that?

Liam, PortSwigger Agent | Last updated: Jun 28, 2019 02:23PM UTC

The Spider function has been removed from Burp 2 Pro and Community. The Spider was becoming increasingly obsolete for use with modern applications. We are considering adding another task to both Pro and Community that would fetch content in the same way Burp Spider would. Unfortunately, we can't provide an ETA for this feature.

I'd also be interesting in finding an answer to this. Is there any equivalent to Spider in the Community Edition post v2 or has that been stripped out and restricted to paying customers?

If the crawling feature is restricted to the Pro version, can this be indicated in the UI on Community? Currently when you right click on a site and chose "Scan", you get taken to the "New scan" screen. The "Crawl and audit" and "Audit selected items" options are both greyed out with some text indicating that they're only available in pro, but "Crawl" doesn't have this, and it lets you configure the scan and apparently run it. The scan then completed immediately with no requests, and no indication that this functionality is only available in the paid version. This means wasted time for both Venom and myself (and probably others) trying to work out why the Crawl doesn't seem to be doing anything, until I came across this thread which says that's by designed. It also makes it just makes it look like the feature is broken. Please can the "Crawl" option be disabled like the auditing options are so this is clear in future? Or even just the whole "Scan" menu item, since it does nothing in Community. Thanks - JP

JP, thanks for this report. It should have been fixed in the latest version. Let us know if there are still any issues.

Unfortunately, we can’t provide an ETA for this feature. Any ETA update[Spidering Option] for Community users? Thank you

Hi, Burp 2.x moved to a task based model. With the new task-based model, you can configure multiple parallel scans, each with their own settings, and independently monitor and control each task. Please see the following link for more information: https://portswigger.net/blog/burp-2-0-where-are-the-spider-and-scanner

Burp User | Last updated: Jan 04, 2020 11:01AM UTC

What is the replacement for spider in community edition.

Michelle, PortSwigger Agent | Last updated: Jan 06, 2020 01:46PM UTC

Community uses the same task-based model as Professional in 2.x, so this article applies to Community too: https://portswigger.net/blog/burp-2-0-where-are-the-spider-and-scanner
