[thearaba] Hi, I want to use the Admin API for Ushahidi version 2, the purpose is to submit report from Mobile Application. I have found this document of Ushahidi Admin API https://wiki.ushahidi.com/display/WIKI/Ushahidi+Admin+API. I wonder how we can include Username and Password for authentication prompt, so we can connect to Ushahidi Backend. if anyone know, please kindly advice.

[David Losada, Ushahidi] I’m not an expert on v2, but I think that would be possible only by reprogramming the code

[David Losada, Ushahidi] as for the v2 admin API @theraba , it looks like the API already requires authentication. The credentials to provide would be the username and password of a user with admin privileges, using HTTP basic auth

[David Losada, Ushahidi] also @donatus.abwao , I’m not sure if this is exactly what you intended to see… but in any case I just wanted to mention that the current Ushahidi mobile application has the opportunity to upload pictures taken on mobile. Video may work, but I know there are open questions to resolve about uploading and hosting that video.

[scottishrocketman] @david has anyone integrated compression software into the mobile client for reports with video and video?
[David Losada, Ushahidi] mm I think we have been using vimeo libraries, I believe they would do some video compression on the mobile
[scottishrocketman] That would be interesting to look into, I have seen a few other cloud based compression solutions recently that might be worthwhile also
