You can use target scope to tell Burp Suite what you're currently interested in testing. Defining a target scope lets you include only what you need to test right now, and exclude content that is outside your work or likely to be boring or fragile. Defining a target scope can also improve performance and memory usage. Many of Burp Suite's tools can be set to only consider items that are within scope.

This tutorial will show you how to define a target scope, both including and excluding URLs. We'll also show you how to use several Burp tools to only view and/or process items that are in scope.
