The Scope settings page enables you to configure the following:

The Scope settings are project settings. They apply to the current project only.

Target scope

These settings determine which hosts and URLs are in scope for your current project. This changes the behavior of tools throughout Burp.

For more information, see Setting the target scope

Out-of-scope request handling

These settings determine whether Burp issues out-of-scope requests.

Select Drop all out-of-scope requests to prevent Burp from issuing any out-of-scope requests. With this setting enabled, out-of-scope outgoing requests are dropped by Burp even if the browser explicitly requests them.

You can select how Burp defines an out-of-scope request:

  • Use suite scope - Select this option to use the suite target scope to determine which requests to drop.
  • Use custom scope - Select this option to define a custom scope to determine which requests to drop.
