Automating login from browser prompt

Recommended Posts

I've been looking into using the IE.au3 features to do some web page automation. I've seen how to auto populate a lot of form fields including usernames and passwords.

What I haven't been able to sort out is how to automate login to a website when the credentials are prompted from the browser. I've been using DebugBar to try to sort out what's what but that doesn't seem to help me for the browser prompt.

Any ideas?

#include <IE.au3>

; Internet Explorer does not support user names and passwords in Web site addresses (HTTP or HTTPS URLs)
; http://support.microsoft.com/kb/834489/EN-US/
RegWrite("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_HTTP_USERNAME_PASSWORD_DISABLE", "iexplore.exe", "REG_DWORD", 0)

$oIE = _IECreate("http://USERNAME:PASSWORD@website.com/protected_dir/index.html", 0, 1, 1)

_IENavigate ($oIE, "http://website.com/protected_dir/different_page.html") ; credentials only necessary for first call

Func _Del_IE_RegKey()
    RegDelete("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_HTTP_USERNAME_PASSWORD_DISABLE", "iexplore.exe")
EndFunc   ;==>_Del_IE_RegKey

Edit: This is for BasicAuth (grey PopUp Box asking for credentials), if you're looking for a form related solution refer to jfcbys post above.
