Performance software testing with multi factor authentication -

Has anyone made any inroads with respect to performance software testing with multi factor authentication - it seems one has to bypass it to use Silk Performer successfully.  Anyone had any luck with this?

Multi Factor Authentication can be challenging as it is generally designed to prevent automated logins using bots. etc.

It really depends on how this is set up.
For example, it may be possible to grab a response key from an external file (e.g. a CSV or text file) if you are able to get the correct response written to that file.
It might be possible to write the required response key to the file using the BDL file functions (FOpen, FWrite, FWrite, etc) and then later read this file for input.

Given that organisations are more security conscious now and are implementing various authentication methods,  how is Microfocus aiming to address this?

What are the options would you suggest?

Which would also be dependent upon how long of a window you have to enter the generated key before the login times out. This can sometimes not be very long at all.
