URL authentication without logon prompt?

Is it possible in some way to access secure page without logon prompt, perhaps using a token or username/password in the query string?

that would not be secure, that would be bypassing security, we don't build things like that. passing security credentials in a query string is a very bad idea.

Yes, but I was wondering if there was some other way perhaps, using security token or some other alternative?

Re: URL authentication without logon prompt?

authorization in mojoPortal depends on authentication which produces a cookie so that it does not have to happen on every request, the cookie is the token that identifies the user across multiple requests

there is nothing built in to mojoPortal to do it another way, trying to work around that would most likely just result in security holes
