Just a small note on this...

As David has stated, even with the RESTful interface we have to stay within the framework of the existing authorization chain. And always putting your POC on an Org is one way to be a part of the authorization chain. Today, it is the only way to do this with automation.

Another method is to login in to AOL and link the new POC to your web account and API Key. Of course, that's not really conducive to automation, so we have worked up the 'makeLink' matrix parameter which can be passed during the POC create call. This parameter will automatically link the new POC to your web account.

This new matrix parameter is already in code and tested, and will be deployed with our next software release which is currently scheduled for late September.

I hope this information is helpful.
