"Start Scan" button in SQLMAP Scanner Tab is not visible

See original GitHub issue

Hi Josh,

First of all thank you for writing this awesome burp extension, it comes real handy in identifying parameters vulnerable to sql injection using SQLMap. However, I have been facing this issue where I don’t see “Start Scan” button in SQLMAP Scanner Tab. I reached out to Burp Support and they were able to see the “Start Scan” button somehow.

I have tried the following things:

  1. Changing Display UI to Metal, OS x and Nimbus.
  2. Using it with updated Oracle Java installed.
  3. Using it on Burp pro and Burp Free
  4. Using it on Mac OS x and Kali Linux (Both Free and Pro Version)
  5. Re-Installing SQLipy Extension
  6. Re-installing Jython

but nothing seems to be working, I am using Burp (Paid and Free) and Jython latest version.

There are no errors generated only the following output:

Calling: /usr/bin/python /usr/share/sqlmap/ -s -H -p 8888

What do you think could be causing this issue?

You just download the script file, then when you start Burp go to the “Extender->Extensions” tab and hit the “Add” button. In the “Extension Details” you change the type to Python, hit the “Select file” button and navigate to where you downloaded the script, and then click the “Next” button.

Thanks, Josh
