Laurence Cadieux

Hello! My name is Laurence Cadieux, and I’m a Communication Coordinnator here at Devolutions. My role includes overseeing the content strategy and development of our blog, managing the content and communication for our VIP advocate platform “Devolutions Force,” and working closely with our PR partners around the world. I also handle our off-site content opportunities (magazines, journals, newspapers, etc.). Academically, I have a bachelor’s degree in marketing. When I’m not working, I sing in a band, and I enjoy watching my favorite movies again and again. I also love cooking, and during the pandemic, I became a bread expert — I can now bake the most amazing key lime pie on earth (if I do say so myself!). Plus, I recently discovered LEGO and there is no turning back — I’m hooked! I’m always happy to help, and you can reach me directly at

QUESTION: How can I autofill credentials in a web connection that I launched within RDM?

Some websites do not automatically allow third-party programs to autofill credentials. If you run into this situation, there are two methods to solve it:

Method 1: Automatically Log Into a Website

  • In the General tab of the Web Browser entry, enter your credentials.
  • In the Login - Settings tab, set the Authentication to Form. Then, verify that the Autofill login and Auto submit options are enabled.


  • In the Html Control ID tab, click the Discover button to define the appropriate fields. The Discover command searches the web page to find the fields that correspond to those in the entry.


Once all the necessary steps have been completed, your credentials will automatically be entered and logged into the site upon launching a session.

Method 2: Manually Identify IDs Corresponding to Login Fields

  • In both the username and password fields, right-click to open the menu and select Inspect.
  • You will see the corresponding IDs to be used in the HTML Control ID tab of the web session in Remote Desktop Manager. Below is an example of the inspection for the Username field, and you can see that the Username ID is username.
