Is there a way to use AD accounts for the REST authentication? It seems to only use local users.

Not right now - I am moving this to Feature requests.

I'd also very much like to see this feature. I think the alternative is to use the .NET API, but REST is IMO much more user friendly.

The question is how you plan to call the REST method. If AD should work then Credentials has to be sent some way. There are only a couple of ways to call to make that possible:

1. call using the browser - but that requires that the browser itself is impersonating
2. call using httpwebrequest in .NET on similar in other programming language and manually supply Credentials there

So, even if this Feature sounds nice it is not really possible to make it "that nice".

We would for instance use this to make calls to VisualCron from our end-user portal. We don't do manual 😉. The credentials would be stored in a secure way and passed as parameters to the REST call.
Also we would use it via powershell with invoke-webrequest and a credential object as a parameter.
