Update Parameters in Macros

Prateek | Last updated: May 19, 2020 06:38PM UTC

Hello, BURP is up & running with default macro parameters from project_options.json file. Scan is triggered to authenticate application using session handling rule, macro will be triggered, we want to programmatically change the parameters in macro and then authenticate while executing session handling rule. Is there any API/options to achieve this programatically.

Could you tell us a bit more about the macro you're using, what it is you want to be able to change, and why? that will help us understand what you need to achieve properly before we confirm whether or not it is possible. If you'd rather not share that detail on the forum, you can email us directly using support@portswigger.net

In macro, I'm looking for options to change password, userid, target under configure item. When ever I trigger a scan for different applications which require authentication, instead of changing credentials and target manually, I would like to do it programatically.

To help us work out what options you may have, could you tell us a bit more about the scenario where you would want to use this? For example: Are you using the Burp UI to trigger the scan? What type of scan are you performing? Are your scans all being run as part of the same project file?
