    May we request for REST API calls to Assure API be able to use tokens as part of its authentication options? currently, the documentation only says basic authentication is used.

    Basic authentication refers to how the API credentials are passed over from the client to the server. Basic auth supports both username/passwords and username/token combinations. To toggle between password-based and token-based authentication, "/token" will need to be appended to your username and then the token inputted as the password. The screenshot below is using the Rest API web service layout with a token:

    A similar setup works via curl to test the setup with Basic auth and a token outside of Assure:

    curl -u ""
