Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

14. Paaano ko manmanan ang password-protected na mga website?

There are 2 types of authentication used on the web: HTTP-based and form-based, we support both methods.

A web site uses HTTP-based authentication if your browser pops up a dialog for you to enter the username and password. To monitor this type of website:

  1. Mag-login sa iyong account
  2. Pumunta sa Monitor -> Magdagdag ng Test
  3. Piliin ang "Magmanman ng website"
  4. Ilagay ang username at password at kumpletuhin ang ibang mga detalye

The second type of authentication is form-based. Websites using this method have a login prompt on the website itself, examples are web-based emails like Hotmail, Yahoo! Mail and GMail. This authentication method works by posting your credentials via the form to the website for verification. To monitor these websites:

  1. Mag-login sa iyong account
  2. Pumunta sa Monitor -> Magdagdag ng Test
  3. Piliin ang "Magmanman ng website"
  4. You can use Live HTTP Headers / Firebug to get the POST data.
  5. Instructions for using Live HTTP Headers:
    • Install Live HTTP Headers to Firefox.
    • Open the form submission page in Firefox. Fill in the form, but DO NOT submit yet.
    • Go to Tools menu and open Live HTTP Headers. Clear any contents that is shown, so that we can see the form submission request.
    • Now submit the form.
    • Locate the POST request at the top of the Live HTTP Headers window.
    • Copy the POST URL and data to the website test form. The POST data may look like parameter1=value1&parameter2=value2....
  6. Magdagdag ng mga keywords na siyang magpapahiwatig ng matagumpay na login (hal. Login successful o matagumpay ang login, o Ang kahulihulihang paglogin mo ay noong...) sa field ng mga required keywords
  7. Pwede mo ring idagdag ang mga keywords na maghihiwatig ng hindi matagumpay na pag-login (hal. Bad username o password, Hindi tama ang username o password) sa field ng mga excluded keywords
  8. Kompletuhin ang iba pang mga detalye (ngunit HUWAG ang username at password fields)
