Allow REST authentication as part of method call

    As I understand it, the REST interface currently requires a separate authentication call to obtain a token used in future REST calls. This does not seem necessary and limits the ability to integrate with third party tools that support constructing an http POST message, but not stringing multiple calls together.

     

    I propose an option to be able to include the authentication information in the header or any REST method call to eliminate the need for multiple calls to do anything useful in REST.
