Defining the scan configuration for a site

  • Last updated: November 11, 2022

  • Read time: 1 Minute

The Scan settings > Scan configurations tab enables you to specify one or more configurations to use when scanning the site. When configuring scans, you can select either a preset scan mode or define a custom configuration:

  • Burp Scanner's preset scan modes are predefined collections of scan settings. They offer a quick way to adjust how the scan balances speed and coverage.
  • Using a custom scan configuration enables you to fine-tune Burp Scanner's behavior to meet your needs.

Whichever option you choose, we recommend keeping a consistent scan configuration for each site you add.
