Regardless of which CI/CD platform you use, the first step of the integration process is to create a dedicated API user in Burp Suite Enterprise Edition. This is used by the CI/CD platform to communicate with the Enterprise server in order to create scans, access the results, and so on.
Before creating the API user, you need to create a new role and group to ensure that your user has all of the permissions required to initiate scans from a CI/CD system.
Once you close this dialog, you cannot retrieve the API key for an existing user. If you lose it, you will need to generate a new key and manually update this in any other applications that use the old one.
Now that you've created the API user, you can use it to configure the integration with your preferred CI/CD platform. Please follow the relevant instructions below.
