How to mimic selenium in cache object Script

Is it possible to mimic what selenium does like navigating to a site and logging in  and filling out a form then logout in COS.I am trying to do that in COS using %Net.HttpRequest class or should I be using a different class the idea is to be able to call a web app login into it and fill out form and log out

Can you tell us more about what do you want to achieve?

I did something similar in past.  %Net.HttpRequest is the right way

You have to mimic a browser and have to find the right Form and Input tags to fill USER and PW typically.
The risk you have:
- you may get a awfull amount of JS and CSS stuff.
- If it isn't a classic form  you may need to reverse engineer all the dynamics behind (like a browser).

It may end up with a very tricky coding exercise.

It could be easier just to log what client serves to a server in a form and do the same in objectscript.

@Robert Cemper  Is it possible to have an example as I do not know where to start so far using the %Net.HttpRequest I have been able to navigate to the Log in page and would like to locate the user inputs and insert some credentials

set oReq = ##class(%Net.HttpRequest).%New()
set oReq.Server =..Server
set oReq.Location =..location
set oReq.SSLConfiguration =..SSlConfig 
set oReq.Https=1

 

I used Caché default login page as an example as it is a very easy one to serve.
http://localhost:57772/csp/sys/%25CSP.Login.cls

Take a look to YOUR login page to see if you really want to do this.

First, you do the Get() to fetch your login page

USER>Write oReq.Get("csp/sys/%2525CSP.Login.cls"),! ZWRITE oReq

I have marked "CacheUserName" , "CachePassword" that you have to submit for Login.
