Automate Authentication

Post by agibsonsw »

Hello.
A colleague is using VBA and a http request to obtain data from a web page.
But the https page requires Authentication. Is it possible to supply certificate details programmatically? Thanks, Andy.

Sometimes you can include the credentials in the url:

Code: Select all
