Web Application Scanning Authentication Issues

I want to scan an application using WAS and I am experiencing some issues with its authentication. The app uses a web form which seems to be a standard one but for some reason I get the error Authentication Failed after I run a Discovery Scan against it. I am pretty sure the URL and the Authetication Record I have created are correct as I have tried them manually too.


The weird part is that I did not have similar issue before and after checking the audit logs on the app, it shows no authentication failures (eg invalid password or username, etc). Only successful logins by me.


Should I select the Customised Authentication Form? If so, what parts I should use to add into the Authentication Record to make it work?
