To add a configuration file to your CI-driven scan:

  1. Create your configuration file, see Creating a configuration file for a CI-driven scan.
  2. Save the configuration file as burp_config.yml in the root of the working directory.
  3. Use the following command to run a scan:

    docker run --rm --pull=always \ -u $(id -u) -v $(pwd):$(pwd) -w $(pwd) \ public.ecr.aws/portswigger/enterprise-scan-container:latest

Note

The above command mounts your current directory into the scan container, and sets it as the working directory for the container.

The scan container looks for the configuration file burp_config.yml in the root of its working directory.
