Set highlight and Set comment

Kbyh | Last updated: Dec 18, 2022 03:51AM UTC

When calling the Extender by selecting a request already obtained in Burp's http history, I want to reflect the Highlight and Comment set in the Extender to the selected request. Can I do that with setHighlight and setComment in IHttpRequestResponse?

Hi. Unfortunately, this functionality is currently broken. We're working on fixing this bug. In the meantime, you should find that this functionality works as expected on v2022.8.5 of Burp.

Hi Hannah, Do these APIs not work in general? I am trying to create an extension using these two and setHiglight is hit or miss while setComment has never worked.
