Scan behind login with basic auth

Last Updated: Sep 09, 2019 11:47AM CEST

Basic auth is mainly used to protect whole systems, such as development environments, from external access.

1. Navigate to Domain settings

To authenticate Detectify with Basic auth, click on your domain on the Dashboard. In the sidebar, click on Settings and select Overview.

2. Save credentials

Provide credentials for the Basic Auth Login and confirm by clicking on Save credentials. Please make sure that you provision custom login credentials for Detectify: We will save these credentials to use for the login process, so we strongly discourage the use of any preexisting accounts or accounts that are used by someone else since this will obstruct attempts to properly log access to your site.
