Providing authentication information for multi-protocol scripts

When recording a web session that uses NTLM authentication, your server may require you to enter details such as a user name and password.

Generating a web_set_user function

When performing NTLM authentication, VuGen adds a web_set_user function to the script.

  • If authentication succeeds, VuGen generates a web_set_user function with your user name, masked password, and host.

  • If you cancel the Web Recorder NTLM Authentication dialog box without entering information, VuGen generates a web_set_user function for you to edit manually.

            "Enter NTLM Password Here", 

    If you enter a password manually, it appears in the script as-is, presenting a security issue.

    To mask a password:

    Right-click the password and select Mask String. VuGen masks the string and generates an lr_unmask function, used to decode the password during replay. For more information about masking strings, see Encode passwords and text.
