How do I customize the columns shown in proxy - http history?

I often fuzz web applications with Linux utilities, and send along custom headers so that I can look at the history within burp for easy identification as to what I was doing in the past. The problem is - the "Comment" column in http-history within burp evidently wont pull from a header called "Comment" and is meant for manual typing in comments one at a time. I can send a customer user agent, but user agent isnt a column shown in the default view. SO - how can I customize the history view to include additional rows or data?

Hi, It is not possible to add columns to the HTTP history tab. Just to clarify what you are trying to achieve, you are looking at some way to easily identify requests, within the HTTP history section of Burp, that you have altered in some way using other tools?

@ben Yes thats correct. So I will proxy other traffic into burp. For example I'll run dirbuster or other tools and proxy that traffic it generates into Burp so that I can compare the requests and easily review it if needed. When doing this, its always helpful to send along some identifier that helps me identify the traffic. For example, sending a custom header or user-agent that identifies the test I was running and the tool I was using .... like: 'ffuf parameter xyz injection test 1'. I can search burp results for this customer header but adding a custom column would be useful.

Hi, Have you tried using the Reshaper extension? This allows you to set up rules so that any requests that match the rules in place can be highlighted within the HTTP history section of Burp (this approach should allow you to quickly identify the traffic that you have generated within the HTTP history). There are some more details on the extension below: https://github.com/PortSwigger/reshaper
