problem with API scanning

Eric | Last updated: Mar 14, 2023 05:47PM UTC

Hello, I would like to scan APIs with Burp Suite. I want to scan it with Burp Suite professional first. I tried hosting my OpenAPI specs at And I add the URLs https://(my target site) and to the "Included URLs" section of the site configuration but it didn't work. Burp Suite Professional still can't crawl the API endpoint on my target site. Could it be possible to have some help with that?

Hi Does the API definition match the OpenAPI version 3.x.x specification? https://portswigger.net/burp/documentation/scanner/scanning-apis If it does, can you please email support@portswigger.net with a few more details about your scan setup and the behavior you are seeing?
