Does anyone know if 2 step verification has any impact on URLs that are passing a username and password?

Hi Joe,

If you have 2 step authentication turned on, you will not be able to pass username and passwords through the url. You would instead need to encode a user token in the url. 

From the help topic on 2 step authentication: http://help.quickbase.com/user-assistance/#faq_two_step_auth.html

"What if I use API integrations?

Any API integrations must authenticate using user tokens and NOT standard QuickBase API_Authenticate. If you are using API_Authenticate, the integration will fail."
