crawler.form_interaction.pre_crawl.[groupId].cleartext.[urlParameterKey]

Specifies the required form values in clear text format for the pre_crawl authentication.

Key: crawler.form_interaction.pre_crawl.[groupId].cleartext.[urlParameterKey]
Type: String
Can be set in: collection.cfg

Description

Specifies the values which need to be passed to the given form in the clear text format. We recommend using this with non-sensitive values since the values are stored in clear text format. Similarly you can use the crawler.form_interaction.pre_crawl.groupId.encrypted.urlParameterKey to specify the sensitive values ie. passwords.

Default Value

None. No pre_crawl clear text values are configured by default.

Examples

To specify the clear text form values in pre_crawl mode Specify the crawler to process the 1st form of the https://www.funnelback.com/login page with the provided parameters

crawler.form_interaction.pre_crawl.1.url=https://www.funnelback.com/login
crawler.form_interaction.pre_crawl.1.form_number=1
crawler.form_interaction.pre_crawl.1.cleartext.remember-me=true
crawler.form_interaction.pre_crawl.1.cleartext.username=john

Should be used in conjunction with the crawler.form_interaction.pre_crawl.groupId.url and crawler.form_interaction.pre_crawl.groupId.form_number keys. Crawler groups the pre_crawl authentication configuration for a given url by matching the groupId parameter. If you need to specify the form number and url parameters for the url https://www.example.com/login then the groupId parameter in related keys should be same. Which is 1 in the above example.

⚠ Caveats

Please note: The characters = (equals) and . (period) are not permitted within the urlParameterKey.
