External authentication and RT's REST API

Hello rt-users,

So, I’ve implemented a Google Sign In flow into Request Tracker with WebRemoteUserAuth enabled and an Apache module called mod_auth_openidc. Now, I’d like to access RT’s REST API with an account authenticated through the external flow. Since these accounts don’t have a standard login flow , you can’t just do REST/1.0/?something=something&user=USERNAME&pass=PASSWORD right? So, I was wondering how to let those kinds of users access the REST API. These users don’t necessarily have an RT password - eg autocreated.
