How can I scan a website which uses CAPTCHA or Single Sign on authentication methods?

To scan a website which uses CAPTCHA or Single Sign on authentication methods, you have to record a Login Sequence using the Login Sequence Recorder, and mark the page for ‘Manual Intervention’.

To mark a page for manual intervention, follow the below procedure:

1. Launch the Login Sequence Recorder and enter the web application URL in the first step.

2. In the second step of the wizard ‘Record Login Sequence’, click on the ‘Pause’ button to pause the recording, and enter the URL of the page which requires human input in the URL input field.

3. Once the page is loaded, click on ‘’ (Manual Intervention) button. Proceed by clicking the ‘Next’ button till the end of the wizard.

When the crawler crawls a page that is marked for manual intervention, the page is loaded in a browser window allowing you to enter the CAPTCHA  text.  Refer to the user’s manual section ‘ Marking Pages for Manual Intervention (human input is required)’ for more details about scanning web pages which require one time input.

 

Note: Only one page can be marked for manual intervention from the Login Sequence Recorder.  If there are more than 1 page in a website which requires manual intervention, the first time the browser window pops up during a crawl, enter the URL of the other pages manually in the browser and proceed with the manual intervention for each page.  By doing so, the crawler will automatically crawl those pages as well.
