If you are using the bundled database, you can control your database backup settings from within Burp Suite Enterprise Edition. Click the settings icon and select Database backup.

You can control the following settings:

  • The file location to which database backups will be saved.
  • The schedule on which database backups will be performed. You can configure backups to run every 1-4 weeks at your chosen time of day.
  • The number of backup files to retain. The default setting is to retain three backups.

You can also back up your database manually at any time using the Back up now button.


If you use an external database, your database administrator manages your backup settings outside of Burp Suite Enterprise Edition.
