Novell SecureLogin


A web page sometimes does not proceed when Single Sign-on administrator use Submit, Click #1, Type N or Type –Raw N.

There are millions of web sites in the world all written to differing standards. In some cases, the website requires a click on the submit button because the JavaScript has a tag called OnClick, and that OnClick tag executes a JavaScript.

The JavaScript that belongs to the OnClick tag will need to be executed by SecureLogin.


View the source on the web page and locate the name of the button you wish to click. Note the java script that is executed and use the GoToURL command to execute the java script.

The following SecureLogin script would be as follows:

GoToURL ""javascript:return Validate (this);""
Delay 500 
GoToURL “javaScript:SubmitEBS(’Modify’)""

The delay is inserted to give time for the JavaScript to execute and produce the results.
