Are non-authenticated requests for metadata possible?

I would like to request metadata used to bootstrap my application *before* a user logs in.  Is there any way to request data, even just static metadata, without authenticating a user? 


Best,

Dan

Hi Dan,


No you cant do this I'm afraid, you would need to be authenticated to retrieve any data from GameSparks. What exactly are you trying to do here ? I there any reason why you couldn't retrieve it after a user authenticates ?


Thanks,

Liam

I just need to store metadata that I pull upon app launch to customize the UI based on location before anyone logs in.  I simply created a user for this purpose.  The only downside to this is that I'm going to be billed for an authenticated user every time the app is launched but it isn't really a "user".  I suppose I could use another server or service like Firebase for the metadata, but I'll happily pay the additional authentications just to keep everything in one place.
