How to use REST API from PBIRS with Custom Security authentication

We've implemented an updated version of the CustomSecuritySample to handle authentication for our on-premises Power BI Report Server.

 

I'd like to be able to automate some management tasks, including publishing an updated PBIX file to multiple folders and updating their data sources, but I can't seem to get past authentication with the REST API in C#.

 

Has anyone else done this? Are there code samples available?

Depending on which auth have you implemented. You'll need to set proper auth headers to inform the server for auth handshake. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/reporting-services/security/authentication-with-the-report-serv...

As I mentioned in the base note, I'm using the Custom Security Sample, which implements forms authentication. Does the REST API support this?
