      Description

      From Backstage:

      I have some feedback regarding the documentation at this URL:

      https://backstage.forgerock.com/docs/am/5.1/authorization-guide/#sec-rest-authentication:

      My browser reports itself as:

      Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_12_6) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/60.0.3112.90 Safari/537.36

      My feedback is:

      Specifically, the part which discusses "You can use the authIndexType and authIndexValue query string parameters as a pair to provide additional information about how you are authenticating. The authIndexType can be one of the following types:”, could we add an example that shows the usage of these parameters? This is due to customers struggling to send curl requests to this URL because of the ampersands (and the need for quoting the URL). For context, check out ticket https://forgerock.zendesk.com/agent/tickets/23799 - tried sending the curl request using MacOS and CentOS (not tried with Windows) and on both occasions I needed to quote the URL for the request to work.
