Configuring tab-specific options

You can override the options selected on the Repeater menu for an individual tab.

To configure tab-specific options:

  1. Select the tab you want to configure.
  2. Click the settings icon next to the Send button to display a context menu containing Repeater options. These are the same options you can find on the global Repeater menu.
  3. Select the required options from the menu.

If you select an option on the tab-specific menu then Repeater ignores all global options for that tab. You should make sure that all options are set correctly on the tab-specific menu before you send requests from the tab. For example, if you select Process cookies in redirections on the global Repeater menu, and Enable HTTP/1 connection reuse on a tab-specific menu, the global Process cookies in redirections setting is ignored.

If you modify options for a tab, the tab's settings icon turns blue. To return a tab to the global Repeater settings, click its settings icon and select Restore global default from the context menu.

If you use a project file, any tab-specific options you configure for open tabs are retained when you re-open Burp Suite.
