I am testing a site using Burp Suite and stuck at a point. Is it okay to ask question regarding a features of tools like Burp Suite and other scanners ?


Questions about security tools are generally on-topic, as listed in the help center.

The tag in particular is quite active with generally well-received questions. You should have good chances to get a quick response for questions related to Burp features.

Personally though, I'm not a big fan of questions about (commercial) security products: Many of them could have been asked without naming and advertising the specific security tool. That is, a lot of Burp questions are in fact just generic questions about HTTP interception proxies. Further, the dedicated customer support forums are sometimes a better fit for questions about commercial tools than SE.

  • I have skimmed customer supports forum but the feature am looking for is not available in Burp. Here is my question – Rahul Apr 1 '17 at 4:24

    If you want a feature in burp, but it doesn't have it, that is a perfect time to contact Portswigger. If it is a useful feature request, then he may end up doing it. – Rory Alsop Apr 1 '17 at 11:19
  • @RoryAlsop: Okay I will do that. – Rahul Apr 1 '17 at 12:29
