Authentication
--------------
When you're using the API, it's always through an existing user in Highrise. There's no special API user. So when you use the API as "david", you get to see and work with what "david" is allowed to. Authenticating is done with an authentication token, which you'll find on the "My Info" screen in Highrise (click the "Reveal authentication token for feeds/API" link).

Authenticating is done with an authentication token, which you'll find on the "My Info" screen in Highrise, in the "Integrations" tab.
When using the authentication token, you don't need a separate password. But since Highrise uses [HTTP Basic Authentication](http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2617.txt), and lots of implementations assume that you want to have a password, it's often easier just to pass in a dummy password, like X.
