Can I test pages protected by either form based or basic authentication?
Yes. You can take screenshots of pages which require a user name and password to login before viewing the page.
For a form-based login on the web page itself, you will need to create a login profile for the URL on the new screenshot test page. For basic or http authentication, either include the correct syntax in the URL to test, or use the login profile option to have it created for you when creating a new screenshot test.
