Hi everyone! I came across the problem with an authenticity token. My task is to log in programmatically at and then retrieve some information. Post parameters to send login request are:

authenticity_token: /bHuPcrEK3noThK07d0JyZfCbPrytxjJeBA3tEgDrDw=
commit: Login
password: blabla

My question is WHERE to get correct AUTHENTICITY TOKEN? Earlier I used constant value I got once in Firebug. May be somebody have already solved this issue. Give me some advice, please. Thanks in advice.

Thnks. I was in a hurry.

I found out there is some information at page before logging in. I digged out a hidden field with this TOKEN. So, solution for my issue is:

1. Get athenticity token before POST from hidden field.
2. Fill in POST parameters including athenticity token.
