Synthetic monitoring without reCaptcha


Hello dynatrace team
I have a doubt, I wanted to implement a synthetic monitoring in my environment, but we have reCaptcha.
Has anyone done something to disregard the reCapatcha of a user? could share how

Synthetic Monitoring can't interact with reCaptcha, so you would need to provide a way to get around this. Some applications have a cookie or header that can be applied and then reCaptcha is avoided. Or you may need to provide an endpoint that does not require it.

I'll give it a try and come back here to share with everyone.

In our case the dev team made  an allowed lists of IP's on the page. If one of the IP's in that list came from the public IP's of the Activegates where the synthetic have been deployed the captcha isn't not presented to the synthetic and runs without problems.

The true delight is in the finding out rather than in the knowing.

I'll give it a try and come back here to share with everyone.

Hi @fernandosilva! I know it's been a while, but do you remember how this case ended eventually? Is it anything to share, as you've said? 😄

I recommend configuring your captcha to be disabled when a HTTP header is present and if it contains a specific value.

And add this custom header HTTP on your synthetic monitor configuration.

I already use this tip to disable WAF strategies during performance tests.
