Why does the API respond with a Sign In required error?

If you are using the QuickBase API (say you are calling API_AddRecord using javascript to handle a form submission) and you get a sign in error like the one shown below:

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
- <qdbapi>
<action>API_AddRecord</action>
<errcode>22</errcode>
<errtext>Sign-in required</errtext>
- <errdetail>
The page you have requested can be viewed only by users who have signed in.
<BR />
Please sign in to proceed.
</errdetail>
</qdbapi>

This means that the developer who wrote the API call has not called API_Authenticate to first get a valid ticket before calling other APIs. Please see the HTTP API documentation for more details about how to use the API.
