Test a restricted site with basic authentication
Is there a way to tell Optimizely a username/password to login when loading a page in the editor?
Great question. Here are a couple resources that should definitely help answer your question.
Essentially you will want to do the following
- Confirm the Optimizely snippet is on the page
- Open your site in a browser tab and navigate to the page you wish to edit. This may entail logging in, adding an item to your cart, or completing a portion of a form. Take the exact steps that get you to the page into the form you want to edit
- Next, open Optimizely in an adjacent tab within the same browser and create an experiment using the URL of the page you’d like to test.
