Rally Authentication issue in Getting results

Discussion created by SanjayCh on Feb 20, 2017

I am using asp.net MVC application and consuming Rally web API for integration. I want fetch the data from rally site.

 

in Login Controller
------------------

 

                RallyRestApi restApi = new RallyRestApi(webServiceVersion: "v2.0");
                dynamic authenticateUser=restApi.Authenticate(usr.UserName, usr.Password, "https://rally1.rallydev.com/", allowSSO: false);
                dynamic objUserName;
                if (authenticateUser.ToString().ToLower() == "authenticated")
                {
                    Session["Username"] = usr.UserName;
                    Session["Password"] = usr.Password;                   
                    FormsAuthentication.SetAuthCookie(usr.UserName, true);
                    FormsAuthentication.SetAuthCookie(usr.Password, true);
                    objUserName = restApi.GetCurrentUser();
                    Session["DisplayName"] = objUserName["DisplayName"];
                    return RedirectToAction("Home", "PortfolioItem");
                }
Here Authentication is successful. But as per my research, if we want to fetch data every time,  I think we need to pass user authentication details like below:

 

          
          CreateResult createResult = restApi.Create("defect", toCreate); // need to get with same restApi object or authentication details

 

         
          OperationResult updateResult = restApi.Update(createResult.Reference, toUpdate);

 

          //Get the item
          DynamicJsonObject item = restApi.GetByReference(createResult.Reference);// need to get with same restApi object or authentication details

 

          //Query for items
          Request request = new Request("defect");
          request.Fetch = new List<string>() { "Name", "Description", "FormattedID" };
          request.Query = new Query("Name", Query.Operator.Equals, "My Defect");
          QueryResult queryResult = restApi.Query(request); // need to get with same restApi object or authentication details

 

 
Like above, is it if we need to fetch anything, we need to authenticate first and every time? please clarify on this.
