How to test a .htpasswd protected page?

Dear Webpagetest community,
is there any option to run tests for .htpasswd protected pages?
I have seen the scripting-documentation to login via form fields. But how to
fill user and password for .htpasswd protection?
Thanks in advance.

If you go to there will be an “authentication” tab where you can provide credentials used for basic-auth protected pages.

The UI had to be hidden by default because some user’s password extensions were autofilling it when they didn’t want it.


Thanks @pmeenan! It works fine.
