When you log in to Burp Suite Enterprise Edition for the first time, you will be prompted to activate your license before you can access the main features.


In order to activate your license, the Enterprise server must be able to connect to portswigger.net on port 443. If you are not able to connect to the public internet from your machine, you'll need to configure an HTTP proxy to connect to portswigger.net.

  1. When prompted, click "Upload license key" and select the license key that you downloaded earlier. If you can't find it, you can download it again from your account page on portswigger.net.
  2. If your license was activated successfully, a message will confirm this. If a connection could not be established to portswigger.net, you will be prompted to configure an HTTP proxy before continuing.
  3. Once you activate your license, this page will show its expiry date and the number of agents that are included in your license. You can purchase licenses to add more agents at any time.
  4. You will be prompted to get started with the basic setup. If this is your first time using Burp Suite Enterprise Edition, we strongly recommend clicking "Continue" to begin the wizard. This will guide you through to process of performing the initial configuration steps so that you can start scanning as quickly as possible.
