When you add extensions to Burp Suite Enterprise Edition, they are uploaded to your Extension library. Users can then apply extensions from this central repository on a site-by-site basis for them to be used during scans.

Prerequisite permissions for adding extensions

Only users with the Manage extensions permission can add extensions to the library. Initially, this is only assigned to the built-in Administrator role.

Warning

Be careful when granting this permission to additional users. During a scan, extensions run on your scanning machine with the permissions of the burpsuite OS user. Therefore, there is a potential security risk if someone inadvertently uploads a fake extension created by a malicious third party.
