Connecting to an Alfresco in the Cloud repo

I'm not sure if this is in the right section, so if an admin could move it to wherever it should be, that would be great.

Our company has decided that we will be using Alfresco in the Cloud as our repository system, and I have been tasked with creating a cmis client to connect to this repository. With a locally/server run alfresco instance, it seems easy enough to connect to the repo via an AtomPub binding, providing url, username, and password. However, with Alfresco Cloud, the only way I have seen to be able to connect to the repo is by linking the app to a dev account and getting an oauth2 token.

Since multiple users would be using this app, would each of them have to create a dev account and link the app and get authentication tokens, because that seems like a very difficult way of doing things. Is there any way I can have the client connect to the necessary repository given just username and password?

Thanks
