Burp Suite, the leading toolkit for web application security testing

Task Scheduler

[Pro version] You can use the task scheduler to automatically start and stop certain tasks at defined times and intervals. You can use the task scheduler to start and stop certain automated tasks out of hours while you are not working, and to save your work periodically or at a specific time.

To access this function, select an HTTP request anywhere within Burp, or any part of the target site map, and choose "Schedule task" within "Engagement tools" in the context menu. Alternatively, you can add a new task directly via the Scheduled Tasks panel within miscellaneous project options.

Creating a new task will open a wizard that lets you configure the details of the task. The following types of tasks are available:

Depending on the type of task, you can also configure a URL (e.g. for scanning) or a file (e.g. to save state).

Each task needs to have a start time configured. Optionally, you can configure the task to repeat at a defined interval.

1.7.16

This release adds various enhancements and fixes:

  • There is a new command-line option to launch Burp with a specified user configuration file.
  • A bug that was recently introduced that prevented license activation in headless mode has been fixed.
  • The Content Discovery function now correctly handles applications that have wildcard behavior for file extensions (e.g. those that return a specific response for admin.xxx regardless of the file extension). This eliminates the only known false positives reported by the new Content Discovery engine.
