Editing schedule scan configurations

Note

The Scan configuration panel is not displayed for schedules created on Burp Suite Enterprise Edition 2022.4 or later, or those schedules that did not already have scan configurations assigned at the time of upgrading to that release. For scans using these schedules, you should define scan settings at site level.

To edit the configurations used by the scan:

  1. From the settings menu , select Scan configuration.
  2. Click Edit to display the Edit scan configuration dialog.
  3. Select the required configurations from the list.
  4. Click Save.

To ensure backward compatibility with longstanding scans, we've retained the ability to specify configurations when scheduling a scan . However, for ease of management and more accurate reporting across scans, we recommend that you replace these configurations with site level configuration.
