Hi, Is there any way to change the scanner settings programmatically?

Hi, Are you able to provide us with some more details of what you are trying to achieve?

For instance, disable some tests automatically if a given condition is met. Other example is to change the number of requests per second/concurrent request also automatically. Basically edit a scan configuration (including the pool) programmatically, through the extender API. Or through the REST API.

Hi As far as I'm aware, there is no way to change the scan configuration from within an extension. You could trigger a request to Burp's REST API, which could then run a crawl and audit on your given site with a specific scan configuration, given a specific set of conditions. There is no way to change the resource pool programmatically.
