Is the Basic Authentication feature (the tab before the Script tab) removed?

Is there any way to test websites with HTTP Authentication? Previously, I was able to do such because the Basic Auth tab is available for use in WPT.

Thanks in advance.

We started to hide it by default in the public UI. We had some overly aggressive password managers autofilling the fields here without users knowing it (even though we were trying to turn autocomplete off) which obviously was something we didn’t want. :slight_smile:

You can turn it on by adding an auth parameter to the URL: WebPageTest - Website Performance and Optimization Test

Or by using a custom script and the setHeader command: Welcome to WebPageTest | WebPageTest Documentation
