How to display content inside websites that require login?

Sometimes you have content behind a website that requires log-in, such as your project schedule in Atlassian's JIRA, Trello, dashboard behind Tableau, Salesforces, etc. It can either be a Browser Popup or a Gated Website (like below)

The solution is simple, you just need to:

  • Copy the link to the page, and dashboard you need to display.
  • Put it in the Website app in OptiSigns
  • Then put the asset on your screen or in the playlist as an asset
  • When it shows up on your device, just use your mouse & and keyboard to enter in username and password (remember to save credentials, for Fire TV, you may need a Bluetooth mouse & keyboard to pair and type this information in). 
  • If you don't have a Bluetooth mouse & and keyboard, you can use a USB HUB adaptor to connect with your mouse & and keyboard.

That's it, the credential will be saved, and every time OptiSigns plays the link, it will show the secured information inside the website.

Enter the Website URL:

Note: Browser Popup kind of password is not supported for Android, FireStick player. Only Windows, Linux, MacOS, Raspberry Pi, and ChromeOS are supported. The app will pop up a window for you to enter password:

You can also prefill a password in your URL for the Browser Popup case such as https://guest:guest@jigsaw.w3.org/HTTP/Basic/
