Fix a bug we've had where:

  • The WebhookView is doing Basic Auth on the user, and then setting it properly on the request
  • The APIWebhookView then is doing Session Auth, and doing CSRF checks on it, because that requst has a valid user

A fix is to remove all the auth methods from the "parent" view,
which this PR does.

I think this is a decent workaround to the problem.

Overall, I do believe that a view calling other views is an anti-pattern. We should probably separate the logic out of the view (into non-view functions and classes) and have different views call these broken out bits.

Yea, it feels like other bugs are lurking in this approach, given that we're 2x processing the request, but this at least fixes the current situation.
