Logging into ActionTiles in iFrame with no keyboard?

Hello All,

I have a quick question, I am trying to add ActionTiles in a MagicMirror project through an iFrame but am having difficulties authenticating.

How can I pass my credentials to the ActionTiles site? I've tried adding username:password in the URL after https:// but that doesn't work.

Thank you!



Hi Major,

We really hesitate to offer a URI based login option, as that is a significant security risk. SmartThings is particularly sensitive about this and might revoke our "WWST"™ certification (not that we aren't also very security conscientious!).

Can you install a remote viewer/control client (like VNC) to your MagicMirror OS?

That would provide all sorts of useful functionality, I think...!


Understood, thank you for your quick response!

So interestingly, why I was trying to add the login in the iFrame is that the iFrame was refreshing on the pi before I could enter my credentials.  I setup VNC to access it after I put it up on a wall and for giggles I tried entering the credentials again but this time it allowed me to enter my username and pw before it refreshed.  So all is good!

Thanks again for the reply!
