Trying to test login of a page but cant get past captcha

RE: Trying to test login of a page but cant get past captcha
I am not sure that this is possible. The point of having a captcha is to defeat automated logins.

The only safe mechanism I can think is to host an internal WPT instance. On your application, you'll have to set a rule to disable captcha for internal addresses and then script the test script.

If this is not feasible, you may want to explore turning off captcha from only WPT IP addresses and probably add some kind of an indication like a custom HTTP header. When a request is from a WPT IP and has the header, your application could drop the captcha and you can continue with the login. This is still a security hole. So please check with your teams before proceeding.
