RunAs user CMIS authentication

Question asked by shazada on Jan 6, 2014

We're migrating from a custom webscript API to the Alfresco CMIS implementation.
The systems use a service account to authenticate and provides an extra runas user param in the request header.
The runas user is read and then the we use the runAsWork.doWork() implementation to run the code.

The code can be: create/delete/update/etc.

In CMIS there is a SessionParameter.AUTHENTICATION_PROVIDER_CLASS, but I'm not sure what to do with it.
BTW, we can't use the ticketing system, because we don't have the password of the user.
I hope someone(hopefully Andy) can help me with this.
