[Catalyst] myapp_test.pl - running code from the command line

I am new to Catalyst and have a question :)
I'd like the ability to run some of the code of my website from the
command line ( a cron job ).
Usually this would be achieved by a person logging into the website and
clicking on a particular button which hits a controller.
I saw that there is a myapp_test.pl that can call a particular address,
so i tried this:
This works fine:
$> perl script/myapp_test.pl /login
I can see the HTML get printed out on my screen.
But when I try to get to a deeper URL it does not work:
perl script/isrms_test.pl /my/other/url
I think this is because there is authentication on the site?
Is this the way I should be going about trying to do this? Is there a
better way to do this?
