RE: Handle HTTP Authentication – Authentication required dialog

I’m using Selenium with the Firefox Webdriver to test different events on my Website.

One event leads to a HTTP authentication dialog.
Is there a¬†way to set selenium to always press cancel or to reach a timeout so I don’t hang around and get back the control of the driver?

Hi John,

You can handle it using the Alert interface.

Code would look something like this

 WebDriver driver = <Your code to initialize>
 WebDriverWait wait = new WebDriverWait(driver, 10);
 Alert alert = wait.until(ExpectedConditions.alertIsPresent());
 alert.authenticateUsing(new UserAndPassword("username", "password");

You can get more details about the Alert interface here

Do let us know if it works out for you.
