Mod headers request to bypass authentication?

#1

Hi,

I have to extract certain elements bypassing the authentication but can't find a way to add mod headers. I tried adding it under spider settings but it still throws me authentication error when i try to extract something.

Can you please help?

#2

You can add headers in Global HTTP Settings or via Spider -> Http Settings. Is this what you mean with "mod headers"?

#3

yeah but it didn't work for me. do i need to restart the excel to make it work?

#4

No, it should work immediately. I would guess the request is not correctly designed. Perhaps try Fiddler to capture the request and inspect what is missing/wrong?

#5

Thanks, I have sorted it out now by selecting the whole range instead of using Xpath in an individual cell function. It works perfectly fine :slight_smile:
