Once you have added an extension to your library, users can apply it to one or more sites. This means it will be used whenever a scan runs on that site.

Applying an extension to a new site

You can apply extensions while creating a new site. Under Additional settings, go to the Extensions section. Use the drop-down menu to select an extension from your library.

Applying an extension to an existing site

To apply an extension to an existing site, select the site and go to the Details tab. Click Edit, then scroll down to the Extensions section. Use the drop-down menu to select an extension from your library.

Viewing extension details

In the extension library, the list of installed extensions displays basic information about each one, such as when it was added, the version number, and so on. You can also click the question mark icon next to the name of each extension to view a detailed description of it.

Removing an extension

To stop using an extension for a particular site, go to the site's Details tab, scroll down to the Extensions section, then select the trash can icon next to the extension that you want to remove.

To remove an extension from Burp Suite Enterprise Edition completely, go to the extension library, then click the trash icon next to the extension. This extension will no longer be available for selection when editing or creating a site. It will also be removed from any sites that it was previously applied to.

Note

If you remove an extension while a scan is in progress, the scan will continue to use the extension until it is finished.

Creating a custom extension for Burp Suite Enterprise Edition

You create custom extensions for Burp Suite Enterprise Edition in the same way as for Burp Suite Professional or Community Edition. Please refer to the extensibility documentation for detailed instructions and some examples.

Note

Currently, Burp Suite Enterprise Edition only supports Java extensions.
