Note. You maybe want to just try the API from the usual web-browser (like Firefox, Chrome, Safari etc.). In this case you may just go to the login page , fill in the login form and submit to authenticate. After successful authentication your sessionid will be stored in the browser, and you may use the address bar (or any REST-client, for example Postman REST Client for Chrome ) to query the API.

In general, for authenticatation, please use the following request:

Request: POST /account/authenticate/

POST parameters:
 * username - user account name
 * password - user password

A successful response will contain a cookie called sessionid. Use this cookie within every request to work with the API.

To reset the session, send the GET request to the

Request: GET /account/logout/

Previously acquired cookie will no longer work.
