Giving server authentication RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Team,

    I am using Visual Studio 2013, it is installed in a server,  when i browse in that server my id is used as authentication. When a web performance test is run in that server using VSTS 2013, it is giving a response that authentication failed for all web page that i browse when running the test. Please let me know how to authenticate the browsing in visual studio using username and password.

    Thanks,

    Dev.

  • Your Web Performance Test has 4 Properties: Credentials, General, Options, and Proxy. The Credentials properties allows you to set the User Name and Password for the test, and whether or not to PreAuthenticate. I was able to use this to authenticate using NTLM credentials that were not my own. The User Name can also be data driven (I'm not so sure about the Password though).
