Using Montoya persistence for setting project extensions

Tyler | Last updated: Feb 27, 2023 10:31AM UTC

Hi, Can Montoya persistence be used to load a list of extensions from the Burp extension store or even custom extensions (given the .jar location)? The line in the release notes "Import extension data from another project file" suggested something like this may be possible. Thank you.

Hi Extension settings (e.g. whether extensions are loaded/unloaded, file location, etc) are stored in the user options configuration. This is not accessible by the Montoya or legacy Extender API. The data that the persistence work refers to is information that the extension itself would like to store - like specific HTTP requests/responses, strings, lists, etc.
