This article is a part of the Guide for Burp Suite series. Within the previous article, we see how to create a project in Burp Suite. Now we'll move forward and learn about some of the features of the Dashboard tab which is present in Burp Suite.
Burp Suite has come with a new Dashboard tab. This lets you monitor and control the automated activity in one place. This tab comes with different windows like Tasks, Event log, Issue activity, and issue definition.
- You can directly configure and launch a new scan for the target by clicking the "New scan" button.
- You can directly configure and launch live scanning by clicking the "New live task" button.
- You can Pause/Resume or monitor already running tasks.
- You can reorder running tasks by dragging them within the task list.
- You can configure settings for how tasks are managed and executed, by clicking the gear icon "⚙" at the top of the Tasks panel.
- You can view the issue activity from any audit tasks that are running, to see vulnerabilities being reported in real-time.
- You can view the event log to monitor for alerts or other information. This can be useful to troubleshoot any problems that occurred during the scanning.
