You can now more easily run end-to-end tests against deployments protected by Vercel Authentication.

All plans can now create a secret value to bypass authentication, which can then be set as an HTTP header (or query parameter) named x-vercel-protection-bypass.

The automation bypass enables you to protect your project's deployments with Vercel Authentication while still providing access to external services like Checkly and Playwright for your CI/CD e2e testing.

See how to use Protection Bypass for Automation.
