Add an api to each wiki that will issue a token used for authentication on another wiki
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Since stricter cookie policies will prevent users who login on one site from
having a cookie for another site when they access the api on that server (typically using Javascript+CORS), scripts need the ability to aquire and use a token that will identify and authenticate a global user on another wiki's api.
