When I record the script against the site a popup appears at the end and the first step is "Authentication Information". On this popup there is a "Test Connection" button.
When I fill in the user details and press the button nothing happens - no indication of whether the connection test passed or failed.
What should I expect to see?
A green check should be displayed in the column next to your password if the test connection passed and an error on the last column if failed.
But there's a bug in 5.2.0 that prevents it. It is fixed in 5.2.1 and this version should be available this week.
