I have an application from which I'd like to be able to retrieve a list of images in a library from Sitefinity. What I can't figure out how to do is authenticate as a backend user so that I can get the list of images if I'm not (or any of the consumers of this feature) logged into Sitefinity. We're running version 6.3, so posts I've found from version 5 don't seem to help since the Users service now requires you to be authenticated to call the authenticate method.
I tried this link (http://www.sitefinity.com/blogs/svetla-yankovas-blog/2013/01/02/working-with-restful-services-part-2-claims-authentication-and-designing-service-calls) which has the same results as before.
If there's a way to just get a list of images without authenticating, that'd be great. I don't need anything but the URL and ID. But if that's not possible, then I'd need to know how to authenticate the user outside of the Sitefinity project.
Anyone know how to do this?
