I have the links to the admin area of my website: it is possible to launch those URIs (links) with selenium (in a given browser) without needing to authenticate previously ? If not, then how could I deal with authentication using selenium ?Answer1:
Not sure what you mean but you can just use selectors and enter credentials to the authentication fields. i.e.
from selenium import webdriver driver = webdriver.Firefox() driver.get(url) driver.find_element_by_id("IDOFLOGIN").sendKeys("YOUR LOGIN") driver.find_element_by_id("PASSOFLOGIN").sendKeys("YOUR PASSWORD") driver.find_element_by_id("login button").click() # Continue
you can find element not necessarily by ID you can also you class, xpath and so on.
