Authentication for creating commits by REST API

With reference to this document

Specifically the commit request:

curl \
    -F /repo/path/to/image.png=@image.png

I don't see how this request is authenticated, there is no password or personal access token used.

Hi John, the documentation is assuming that the user is already authenticated 

Bitbucket uses the authenticated user's full/display name and primary email address. Commits cannot be created anonymously.

Similarly to when you do any git operations from your terminal.

Hope that clarifies!
