I couldn't track this topic in the documentation. I have a prospect that has a web app that uses captcha and they consider setting up synthetic monitoring (ESM, not Gomez), but have no clue whether it's possible at all.
Answer by Pablo G. ·
Just from personal experience, I think captcha's are probably not supported seeing that their main role is to prevent against synthetic scripts with complicated images and dynamic properties to look for.
Do they specifically want to make sure the captcha pops up? If they want to just test the web app, is there a way to verify someone is past the captcha authentication stage (a cookie or token) that could be utilized?

Yes, I know what Captcha is and why. The prospect's question was very vague and didn't provide much detail or background. Perhaps they can control the way it's going to behave on their login pages. Hence my question regarding your experience with ESM and Captcha. Thanks everybody for your interest.

In support to the two previous opinions please visit http://www.captcha.net/. In the very first line one can read:
A CAPTCHA is a program that protects websites against bots ...
and the ESM agent is a robot and it cannot overcome captcha or any other anti-robot software.
