Autofilling HTTP basic/digest when there are multiple matches

Thank you for your post!

Feature name

  • Autofilling solution for HTTP basic/digest when multiple matches


  • HTTP basic/digest only gets autofilled when there is only 1 Login match

  • It does not get autofilled if there are multiple matches

  • By its nature, we also can’t pick a login to fill it

  • As a result, the only way is to manually copy the username and password

  • It can be quite common now to have multiple accounts matching the website we are on

  • My specific issue is that our development websites have a HTTP basic followed by a webform login

Feature function

  • What will this feature do differently?

    • It will be able to select the correct credentials for HTTP basic/digest even when there are multiple matched logins
  • What benefits will this feature bring?

    • Compared with today, it allows autofilling of HTTP basic/digest instead of being stuck at the password prompt, required multiple steps of copying and pasting to overcome
  • Remember to add a tag for each client application that will be affected

    1. Add a flag in the Login to indicate that it is for HTTP basic/digest only

    2. When this flag is checked, the login’s icon should have a badge to indicate that it has the flag checked, i.e. will be the one to be used for HTTP basic/digest

    3. User can have multiple accounts with the flag, however, in this case, BW will revert back to current behavior and ask user to copy/paste
