    Getting started with REST API and Application Key Authentication

    I'm looking around and don't see much if any documentation as to how Application Key Authentication works in the ThingWorx REST API.


    I have an automated external program that wants to talk to ThingWorx, what does the authentication pattern look like? 


    Is the application key just a header in the GET/POST/UPDATE/DELETE HTTPS request, like along side Content-Type? Or do we post to some authentication endpoint and then go from there?


    (I already created a key.)
