Repeater rename tab names

Lukasz | Last updated: Jan 11, 2018 02:46PM UTC

Hello, is it possible to add the functionality to change tabs name in repeater? It is cosmetic but could save a lot of time sometimes, especially with huge applications. Best Regards

This functionality is already available. Which version of Burp are you using? To rename a Repeater tab double click on the tab. To reorder a Repeater tab, click and hold the tab and drag it until you see an orange line highlighting the tabs new location. Please let us know if you need any further assistance.

Hi! This is already possible. Just double-click the number and enter whatever you want. Best regards Alex

I missed it or was using older version. Thank you.

Hey, I'm using the community edition v2021.3.1. Can I assign a hotkey to rename the tabs?

Currently there is no hotkey functionality available to rename Repeater tabs. Is this a feature that you would be looking to see added to Burp?

Hi Ben, Certainly! I try to use the mouse as little as possible, so whatever I do I prefer to do it entirely using the keyboard. I think it would be extremely practical to simply click (e.g.) Ctrl + R, rename the tab, click enter and continue analyzing, without wasting time looking for the active tab and aiming the mouse click on the desired tab as it is done today. Best regards, Gustavo.

Hi Gustavo,

I will have a chat with the development team to see if we can add this as a feature request for you.
