Get Burp's default intruder insertion points

Tyler | Last updated: Mar 01, 2023 11:41AM UTC

Hey, I am looking to build upon Burp's insertion points for intruder. Is there a way to get the default insertion points for a request? I thought it might be markers() but this returns an empty list for a multi-parameter request. Thank you for your help.

Hi When you say "build on", are you looking to supply additional insertion points to requests? When sending a request to Intruder with the Montoya API, you can specify insertion point positions.

Hi Hannah, Thanks for the reply. There is an edge case I'm working with where several parameters are part of an entire string in JSON. Instead of manually parsing the JSON and specifying insertion points, I'd ideally want to look out for this edge case and then add the extra insertion points into the default list. What I'd like to do with Montoya is retrieve the "default" list of insertion points, update it, then send it back to intruder with the new list. Thank you

Hi It's not currently possible to retrieve the list of automatically detected insertion points. We've raised a feature request for this functionality. How much are you using the automatically detected insertion points? If there are only a few that you are regularly using, you could include these as part of your provided list of insertion points.

Hi, Thank you for putting in the feature request! I am using quite a few, but I would also like to build a way to automatically add insertion points for nested json (where its stringified) which would require me to do a bespoke parser for insertion points anyway, so we will see how that goes. Thank you for your help.
