Hello guys, Any idea how to extract strings matching a regexp in Burp? I mean i see how to search but not how to extract. Thanks,

Hi Phackt, This is possible in Intruder with the Grep - Extract feature. It's not currently possible in the Search window. A few people have requested this in the past and we think it would be a nice feature. However, it's fairly low down the priority list at the moment. We will let you know when we make progress.

I would also like to have this feature included in burp - it would be nice, to have custom rows in the proxy history and other windows, where regexes or grep-matches can be displayed easily. Since you already have the logic implemented (https://portswigger.net/burp/documentation/desktop/functions/response-extraction) you could add it to the ui in other areas as well with relatively low effort.
