Since v0.3.0, Burp-UI supports asynchronous operations thanks to Celery. In order to use this feature, you need to enable it in the configuration (see Production section)

You will also need some extra requirements:

pip install "burp-ui[celery]"

Celery needs a Broker to communicate between the workers and your application. I chose Redis so you will need a working Redis server (Basically you just need to run apt-get install redis-server on Debian based distributions)


Once everything is setup, you need to launch a worker. Burp-UI ships with a helper script called bui-celery. You can use it like this:

bui-celery --beat

If your configuration is not in a common location, you can specify it like this:

bui-celery -c path/to/burpui.cfg -- --beat


A systemd service example file is shiped in the contrib directory


The --beat option is recommended since some operations need to be executed periodically


The usage of a database is recommended to keep a track of executed tasks
