How do you cache a site that you need a username & password to login.

Hi Phil,

You can provide a generic logon for a job, but you can't do it for individual user pages.

HTH,

Hi Phil,

My bad! I thought you can do this, but you can only configure creds for cache rules.

Thanks!
Tom

Hello Phil,

As for as I know you can not cache a site that requires authentication or certs. For security reasons!

depends on the site too.
Some times you can encode the credentials into the URL itself. eg:
For access to website.com for user fred with password secret
http://fred:secret@website.com may work.
Other times, dependant upon how the authentication works you can include the credentials at the specific logon page
eg: http://websitename/logon.asp?user=fred&password=secret

give these a go for the specific site and see how you go.

I agree you can encode the credentials into the URL however this is not good practice and can present a serious vulnerability.

Although Ssl sites can be cached i do not recommend you do this!
