Specifies the required form values in clear text format for the pre_crawl authentication.

Key: crawler.form_interaction.pre_crawl.[groupId].cleartext.[urlParameterKey]
Type: String
Can be set in: collection.cfg


Specifies the values which need to be passed to the given form in the clear text format. We recommend using this with non-sensitive values since the values are stored in clear text format. Similarly you can use the crawler.form_interaction.pre_crawl.groupId.encrypted.urlParameterKey to specify the sensitive values ie. passwords.

Default Value

None. No pre_crawl clear text values are configured by default.


To specify the clear text form values in pre_crawl mode Specify the crawler to process the 1st form of the page with the provided parameters


Should be used in conjunction with the crawler.form_interaction.pre_crawl.groupId.url and crawler.form_interaction.pre_crawl.groupId.form_number keys. Crawler groups the pre_crawl authentication configuration for a given url by matching the groupId parameter. If you need to specify the form number and url parameters for the url then the groupId parameter in related keys should be same. Which is 1 in the above example.

⚠ Caveats

Please note: The characters = (equals) and . (period) are not permitted within the urlParameterKey.
