Question

Can I configure transparent login to a Windows application even if the Learning Tool does not recognize the windows ?

Answer

There are cases when the Learning Tool in Learning mode will be unable to determine the Windows ID when exploring the Windows application whose automatic login needs to be set up

As seen in this slide, the Contol Viewer is showing as empty, so we cannot establish the name of the windows to choose.

In this case we will create the script by going to the area where we want to put data, selecting it, and writing in what we want.

To do that we will use the Mouseclick tool in the Learn Tool (Mouse icon in the menu bar). Choosing the tool will create a window like the following

Once the Mouse tool has been chosen, click in the Browse tool and then in its window, choose the "Click in the given windows position" option. Then click on the "target-like" cross besides it and move to the position in the window where you would like to start typing data: this amounts to what you would do if you went to that windows and you clicked on it, thus making the field active.

Next, hit the Text Entry tool in the Learn Tool Application and choose type Keystroke

You will see in a new Add Edit Tag Window will appear with Element Id Window. This means it considers wherever the cursor is as a place where it will try to write whatever text is specified in the Value field. The Mouseclick tag above and the present one would amount to clicking on the ServerAddress field and filling it with a text (in this case an IP address).

After this the first field would be completed. Next, one should go to the second field. To do that, create another Mouseclick tag and- as before- choose the position tool and move the mouse over the second fillable field (Username)

And, once this one is picked up, repeat the same operation as you did for the IP Address: choose a Text tool, specify Keystroke and include in the text field of the tag a username.

The procedure may be repeated successively until filling all the fields and hitting the OK button for logging in.

If you have PAM configured to send the username, password and host, you can specify Value type as password, username or host, in which case the only possible value is "true". For more information see the online help for the tool
