Restore scan queue issues column

Wynand | Last updated: Apr 13, 2016 12:26AM UTC

I have been using Burp for many years and appreciate all the updates and features. One feature/bug that have been bugging (pardon the pun) me is when one restores a previous Burp state, the Issues column in the scan queue does not restore. The number of issues and colour coding according to severity is invaluable when doing a lot of active scans; once the state is restored it is gone and one has to manual work through the Target tab to find the issues. Even opening the scan queue item does not contain the original list of issues. This would be a really great enhancement, especially with the new Burp project file concept just introduced.

You're right this has been a long-standing limitation with state files. We just released version 1.7 which replaces state files with the new project file feature, and project files do retain full data within the scan queue and the issue activity tab.
