Our recorded login feature (available on the Professional plan) allows you to scan your web application behind login. To use recorded login, you need to record the login sequence using our Chrome extension, then upload it to your Detectify account. The scanner will then replay the sequence to log in during your scan.
1. Install the Detectify Chrome Extension
To get started, install our Chrome extension.
When the extension is installed, you will see the Detectify icon in your address bar.
2. Record the login sequence
Navigate to your domain in Chrome and click on the Detectify icon in the address bar to open up the extension. When you are ready to record the sequence, click Start recording.
Go to your login page and log in as you normally do.
3. Finalize the recording
When you have successfully logged in and the landing page has loaded properly, open up the extension again and select Finalize recording.
4. Review the recording
Clicking on Finalize recording will bring you to a review state where all the recorded requests are be listed. You can deselect any steps that do not belong to the login scenario. When you are done, select Download to download a file with the recorded login sequence.
5. Upload and enable recorded login
You are now ready to upload the login sequence. To do this, log in to your Detectify account and navigate to Settings --> Authentication --> Recorded login --> Edit.
You will be prompted to upload the login sequence file. Once you have uploaded the file, click save.
6. Run a test!
Your login sequence is in place and you are ready to run a test! To check whether the scanner was able to log in successfully, look for the Recorded User Events Succeeded finding in your report.
