I'm trying to post data to a web page on a secure site and before doing so, I need to log in.

I've created two HTTP tasks...

1) Perform login by posting data to the site login page
2) Perform HTTP post on another page within the site

The first request seems to log into the site successfully (I changed it to GET and looked at the output) but the second request just gets routed back to the login page. Should I be approaching this differently? I thought this should work as VisualCron is meant to support Cookies and sessions now...?

Thanks
Neill

Do you know what kind of session system the remote system uses? If it uses Cookies or Forms based authentication?

It's a WebLogic server and uses cookies.

Ok, it seems to work ok now. While developing, I was running the tasks individually and seeing the behaviour posted. However, if I run the tasks as part of a job, it seems fine. I assume session scope lasts for the duration of the job...

Exactly, the cookie should remain during a Job run. Thanks for the feedback.

I'm trying to do the same thing. I create an HTTP post task to pass in my my credentials and login to the page (which I think should create the session), and then do an http get to obtain an html output after I log in. But it keeps just going to the main log in page (meaning that the login did not take or did not post. How did you get this to work>?
