Hi support,


I am using the Author - Library Items API to add items to Library. But when I call the api it response 400 Bad Request error:


    "errors": [
            "code": "basic_auth_not_supported",
            "title": "No basic auth; requires a user (use Bearer auth or include as_user_ID)"


I knew that I can provide a param "?as_user_id=1" to make the call success, but what does it use for? Why I need it? I didn't find any description in the documentation.
