Selenium - Basic Authentication via url

0
0

In my Selenium-Test (with chromedriver-2.24) I’m trying to access my webpage via basic authentication with the following statement:

WebDriver driver  = ...;
driver
.get("http://admin:admin@localhost:8080/project/");

But Google Chrome gives me the following warning in the console:

[Deprecation] Subresource requests whose URLs contain embedded credentials (e.g. https://user:pass@host/) are blocked. See https://www.chromestatus.com/feature/5669008342777856 for more details.

In the tagged link is mentioned that the support was dropped:

Drop support for embedded credentials in subresource requests. (removed)

My question now is, is there an other way to basic-authenticate from Selenium?

There were some updates in this link where it was publicly announced that:

Drop support for embedded credentials in subresource requests. (removed)

We should block requests for subresources that contain embedded credentials (e.g. “http://ima_user:hunter2@example.com/yay.tiff“). Such resources would be handled as network errors.

This information is as per Chromium Issue 435547

I will like to share that Basic Authentication functionality still works with Selenium 3.4.0, geckodriver v0.18.0, chromedriver v2.31.488763, Google Chrome 60.x and Mozilla Firefox 53.0 through Selenium-Java bindings.

Here is the example code which tries to open the URL http://the-internet.herokuapp.com/basic_auth with a valid set of credentials and it works.

Firefox:

import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.FirefoxDriver;
public class BasicAuthentication_FF
{
public static void main(String[] args)
{
System.setProperty("webdriver.gecko.driver", "C:\\Utility\\BrowserDrivers\\geckodriver.exe");
WebDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver();
driver
.navigate().to("http://admin:admin@the-internet.herokuapp.com/basic_auth");
}
}

Chrome:

import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.chrome.ChromeDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.chrome.ChromeOptions;
public class BasicAuthentication_Chrome
{
public static void main(String[] args)
{
System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.driver", "C:\\Utility\\BrowserDrivers\\chromedriver.exe");
ChromeOptions options = new ChromeOptions();
options
.addArguments("start-maximized");
options
.addArguments("disable-infobars");
options
.addArguments("--disable-extensions");
WebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver(options);
driver
.navigate().to("http://admin:admin@the-internet.herokuapp.com/basic_auth");
}
}
