How to Submit HTTP authentication with Selenium python-binding webdriver

0 votes

I'm using Selenium python binding to setup an automation test for our web application. I'm facing a problem while testing the web on beta server because it requires HTTP authentication for an intranet username and password.

from selenium import webdriver

driver = webdriver.Firefox()
driver.get("https://somewebsite.com/")

I need to submit a username and a password for the popup dialog upon accessing a website.

Is there a better way to do this?

I have found a solution to this question:

from selenium import webdriver

profile = webdriver.FirefoxProfile()
profile.set_preference('network.http.phishy-userpass-length', 255)
driver = webdriver.Firefox(firefox_profile=profile)
driver.get("https://username:password@somewebsite.com/")

The FirefoxProfile part is to dismiss the confirmation dialog because by default Firefox will show a popup dialog to prevent pishing.
