If you're not using SCIM, you can duplicate your SAML or LDAP groups in Burp Suite Enterprise Edition and manage them locally. You do this by creating groups in Burp Suite Enterprise Edition that have identical names to your SAML or LDAP groups.


You can add local users to the local groups in Burp Suite Enterprise Edition. However, you won't be able to see any users that are managed by SAML or LDAP.

To create local groups for SAML or LDAP in Burp Suite Enterprise Edition:

  1. Log in to Burp Suite Enterprise Edition as an administrator.
  2. From the Team menu, select Groups.
  3. Click New group.
  4. Create a new group representing each of the groups of users in your Active Directory or SAML identity provider. Make sure that the groups you create have exactly the same names as the ones you send from Active Directory or your SAML identity provider.
  5. If you manage your users directly in Entra ID (formerly Azure AD), you will need to use the Group ID instead. For more information, see Configuring SAML SSO with Entra ID.
  6. Assign roles to your groups as required. If you do not assign any roles, users can log in but they can't access any functionality.
  7. Apply site restrictions for each group as necessary. This limits which sites users in each group can access.

Users can now log in to Burp Suite Enterprise Edition using their existing credentials. For SAML SSO, users need to click the link on the login page to authenticate themselves via your identity provider.
