    AIR 2 Connect to REST Service using Claims Based Authentication

    jmandawg Level 1



      I have an AIR application and i need to connect to sharepoint 2010 webservices to pull data.  Sharepoint uses "Claims Based Authentication" which ultimately authenticates agains Active Directory.  When i go to the sharepoint site i am automatically logged in using my default credentials.  Is there anyways to make my AIR app pass these credentials to sharepoint when i access the REST and Web services?  Or am i SOL.


      It looks like it's really easy to do in Silverlight, but are app is already written in AIR.  Here's an example of doing it in C#:
