Overview

 In some situations, a recording of a website login may record steps properly, but when played back in the Recorder, it fails to complete the steps.

Cause 

This can happen if the website fails to detect the standard input of text into the given fields or activation of the login button.

Resolution

Use XY capture mode to record the input of the username/password and click of the login button. This simulates actual keyboard and mouse events which the standard input does not do.
