    Interacting with API…

    I know you can curl your host, to get a CSRFPreventionToken and Ticket for auth. Is that the *only* way to authentication for API stuff? or can you use an API token for it instead? (specifically for interacting with the API, not just regular usage) Thank you in advance!
