Burp Suite, the leading toolkit for web application security testing

Task Scheduler

[Pro version] You can use the task scheduler to automatically start and stop certain tasks at defined times and intervals. You can use the task scheduler to start and stop certain automated tasks out of hours while you are not working, and to save your work periodically or at a specific time.

To access this function, select an HTTP request anywhere within Burp, or any part of the target site map, and choose "Schedule task" within "Engagement tools" in the context menu. Alternatively, you can add a new task directly via the Scheduled Tasks panel within suite options.

Creating a new task will open a wizard that lets you configure the details of the task. The following types of tasks are available:

Depending on the type of task, you can also configure a URL (e.g. for scanning) or a file (e.g. to save state).

Each task needs to have a start time configured. Optionally, you can configure the task to repeat at a defined interval.

v1.6.12

This release contains various bugfixes and minor enhancements, including:

  • In the site map table, the "Method" column previously always showed GET for requests without a body, and POST for requests with a body, even if the actual method was different. This bug has now been fixed and the table shows the correct method.
  • A bug which prevented client SSL certificates from being used when an upstream proxy is configured has been fixed.
  • A bug which caused Decoder to fail to decode hex number HTML entities containing an upper-case X has been fixed.
