    Our web application uses Common Access Card for authentication. For those who are not familiar with CAC smart card, here is the definition:

    "The CAC, a "smart" card about the size of a credit card, is the standard identification for active duty uniformed service personnel, Selected Reserve, DoD civilian employees, and eligible contractor personnel."

    When I recorded the test, I logged in with using my CAC card (CAC card is physically connected to the computer through a CAC card reader using USB cable). The test executed and passed. No problem there. If I remove the CAC card and run the test it would not work. I get alert message requesting to insert CAC card. The fact that I have to leave my CAC card in all the time when I run the test can be a potential issue down the road. I'm just wondering if there is any kind of support for CAC card in the Test Studio. What I ultimately wanted to do is not having to keep my CAC card physically at the machine when I run the test. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Thank you!

    Hello Jun,

    Thank you for choosing Telerik Test Studio. 

    The purpose of the card you are using is to secure the access to your application. It acts like a username and password. It is not possible for Test Studio to simulate the availability of that card while executing your test. If there is a way to login with username and password that would be handled. 

    Thank you for your understanding! Please let me know if there is anything else I could be helpful with.
