Pinned topic Pass authentication credentials in Mashup URL

‏2013-05-01T15:50:03Z |

I would like to access report using Cognos Mashup URL, with REST interface. What are the parameters to be used for passing authentication credentials?

http://webservername:portnumber/ibmcognos/cgi-bin/cognos.cgi/rds/resource_type/source_type/source_id?option1=val1&option2=val2...

I have access to the authentication samples using javascript code, will not work as the URL is built by users entering the values on a separate interface and will be submitted to Cognos BI server to render report output.
