How do I use user authentication for HTTP Provider (not admin)?

I have an HTTP Provider and I want to use authentication, but I don’t want to use an administrative account, I want to use a basic user account. How can I accomplish this?

Read this write up. I believe that is what you need. If you still need more info I will be happy to explain more.

Otherwise If you are just looking for simple custom authentication (not of the rest api or any built in endpoint) then either take the query string route or headers or even post form variables for the endpoint. Later in your code fir the http provider authenticate the parameters against whatever data source you want.
