When you try to launch the Login Sequence Recorder (LSR) on Linux, you will receive an error. This will change in the future. In the meantime, the Acunetix LSR can be launched from Terminal using the following commands:

To create a new login sequence, use acunetix-login-recorder. To edit an existing login sequence file, use acunetix-login-editor. Use the -proxy IP:PORT parameter if you need to use a proxy server.

  • A video demo would be extremely helpful but I launched the command and I am not entirely sure what to do next because the terminal is just blinking

  • Hi,

    you can check the video at https://www.acunetix.com/blog/docs/acunetix-wvs-login-sequence-recorder/, which shows how to use the Login Sequence Recorder.

    When the run the command acunetix-login-recorder from the machine running Acunetix, the Login Sequence Recorder UI is launched on the Desktop. A Linux desktop is currently required to record a Login Sequence. We will release an update in January 2019 which would allow you to record a login sequence from the Acunetix Web UI.
