Selecting a configuration
The next step in the startup wizard is to select which configuration files you want to use for the project. Configuration files are used to store custom configurations for different aspects of Burp. This could be a custom configuration for a particular type of scan or it could be a configuration file containing different user or project settings. For example, you might have different project settings depending on which client the project is for.
If this is your first time using Burp, you will probably need to use the default settings to begin with. However, as you continue to work with Burp, you can save your own configuration files as you go so that you can reuse them in other projects.
You can choose from the following options for the project configuration:
- Use Burp defaults - This will open the project using Burp's default options.
- Use options saved with project - This is only available when reopening an existing project, and will open the project using the options that were saved in the project file.
- Load from configuration file - This will open the project using the options contained in the selected Burp configuration file. Note that only project-level options in the configuration file will be reloaded, and any user-level options will be ignored. A list of recently used configuration files is shown for quick selection.
