The Out-of-scope request handling 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 - If this setting is selected, then Burp uses the suite scope (as defined on the Target > Scope) tab to determine which requests to drop.
  • Use custom scope - If this setting is selected, then Burp uses a custom scope to determine which requests to drop. You can define the scope using Burp's standard URL-matching rules.
