How to make FileRepository URL access available for es-public-access (Vuforia Studio)?

Hi folks--

I'm trying to develop a Vuforia Studio experience that has access to a large number of images. Because of the large number, I don't want to include them all in the experience, I would like to load the one I want dynamically from a Thingworx FileRepository Thing.

 

It's set up using URL access (e.g. https://{server-host):8443/Thingworx/FileRepositories/VuforiaProcedureGraphicStore/{path-to-file}). However, it doesn't seem to recognize the defined "anonymous Vuforia user", es-public-access. When I try to load a graphic via URL from the FileRepository, it prompts me to log in.

 

I have set visibility of the FileRepository thing for es-public-access-org (which contains the es-public-access user), and set read, write, and execute permission for the es-public-access user on all properties and services on the thing. But I still can't access it without getting a login prompt.

 

Can someone tell me how to configure this so that the AR experience can access the files in this repository without having to log in? Thanks.

You probably can do this by adding an appkey to the URL for auth.
