Website authentication

Website authentication

To access an authenticated website you can use the chrome or edge connectors. webhint uses the browsers installed in your computer, so if you are already authenticated webhint can take advantage of that and analyze that site.

There are a couple things to take into account:

  • chrome automatically creates a new empty profile each time it is executed. You will have to use the "defaultProfile": true property in the connector’s options. You have more information in the chrome configuration.
  • edge does not create a new profile, so there is no need to add any extra configuration. Nevertheless, edge works best with webhint when it is the only open tab so if you can only be authenticated during the length of a session you might have some problems.
