Burp contains a large number of suite-wide options that affect the behavior of all tools. These are divided into project-level and user-level options.

You can use the links below to find detailed information about all of the different options that are available. As the full list can appear daunting at first, we've also provided an overview of some of the key configuration options that you are most likely to use.

Key configuration

Some options can be defined at both the project and user level. For these options, you can configure your normal options at the user level, and then override these if required on a per-project basis. For example, you might normally use a corporate LAN proxy to connect to the Internet, and you can configure this in your user-level settings. For particular projects, when testing an internal application or on site at a particular client, you might need to use a different upstream proxy or none at all. You can configure this in your project-level settings for the relevant projects.

Project options

Project-level options are stored within the Burp project file for disk-based projects. They can also be saved and loaded from project configuration files.

User options

User-level options are stored within the local installation of Burp, and are automatically reloaded each time Burp starts. They can also be saved and loaded from configuration files.
