crawler.form_interaction.in_crawl.[groupId].encrypted.[urlParameterKey]

Specifies an encrypted form parameter for in-crawl authentication.

Key: crawler.form_interaction.in_crawl.[groupId].encrypted.[urlParameterKey]
Type: ConfigPassword
Can be set in: collection.cfg

Description

Specifies a form parameter for in-crawl authentication. Form parameters set using this option will be stored within the collection configuration in an encrypted form and also be obfuscated when viewing the parameter in the administration interface.

This setting should be used to pass any sensitive form parameters such as passwords and API keys.

crawler.form_interaction.in_crawl.[groupId].cleartext.[urlParameterKey] can be used to to specify the non-sensitive form parameters.

Encrypted values can also be generated using the admin API.

Once the value has been encrypted it is not possible to view the original value and any changes will require you to set the value again (rather than edit it).

The web crawler decrypts the values before passing them to the specified form.

Configuration parameters for a rule are grouped using a groupId value common across all settings that make up the rule.

This setting is used in conjunction with the crawler.form_interaction.in_crawl.[groupId].url_pattern key.

Default Value

None. No in_crawl encrypted values are configured by default.

Examples

Specify the crawler to process pages with a form action of https://www.funnelback.com/login.jsp with an encrypted password parameter.

crawler.form_interaction.in_crawl.1.url=https://www.funnelback.com/login.jsp
crawler.form_interaction.in_crawl.1.encrypted.password=ENCRYPTED:AV/mN4XBeymvW1yXi/Xu5tPoznug3zk98qDyYIPbGM0x93ZrFA==

⚠ Caveats

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