Cannot set spider link depth to zero.

Hello | Last updated: Jan 22, 2016 03:21PM UTC

https://portswigger.net/burp/help/proxy_options.html#interception writes that "Spider >> Options >> CrawlerSettings >> Maximum Link Depth" accepts zero values: "A value of zero will cause the Spider to request seed URLs only" However, when I try to set the value to zero, the UI says "invalid value". How do we set it to zero?

We'll look into this. Either the documentation needs updating or the validation message is incorrect.

We've investigated this and it appears to be a cosmetic issue with the UI warning wrongly appearing when the user enters 0 into this text field. The underlying engine is working correctly. We'll get this fixed shortly.

This issue should be fixed in today's release (1.6.36).
