Conflicting scan configurations

James | Last updated: Mar 08, 2023 06:10PM UTC

If a Burp user accidentally picks two built-in scan configurations one of which excludes the other, what happens? Let's say the user adds 'Audit checks - medium active' and 'Audit checks - light active' will both medium and light happen even though light excludes medium? Or will the presence of light cause medium to not happen? Does the order matter? If so, how does the order affect this situation?

If two scan configurations are applied that set the same fields, then the last one in the list will take priority. So in your example where the two sca configurations are settings values for the same fields, the last one in the list will be applied. I hope this helps. Please let us know if you have any further questions.
