Restrict search in responses or requests only

Hello, Burp is awesome, it would be even more awesome if it were possible, when searching for a string, to restrict the search only in requests or responses. For example, searching for an auth token only in the responses, would make it much quicker to find where a cookie or an HTTP header is assigned.

Hi Mattia, Thanks for your message. Unless I am misunderstanding you, you can do this already. In the search window (Burp menu > Search) you can select the locations you want to search in. This includes "request headers" "request body" and more. Please let us know if you need any further assistance.

Thank you Paul, this is what I was looking for. It would be great to also add these filters in the Burp Proxy view as well. Thanks, Andreas
