Author post as another user

Hello,

Is it possible to author a post as another user via the REST API? I have an integration which synchronizes content between two systems. When a user authors a post in the other system, I need my middleware server to create a similar post in MM on behalf of the user. Is this possible?

Thank you,

Chris

Hello, @cwilkinson.efiia

The author of REST API is tied to owner of the personal access token in which the API call is being made from (GET / POST / PUT /DELETE). Have you considered the usage of bot accounts in this case?
