REST API avatarURLs require OnDemand authentication to view.

Using the REST API, when you get any sort of user object, they have an avatarURLs property. Unfortunately these URL require the end-user to be logged in, otherwise they see the default blue-and-grey avatar when this avatar is served.

We are using/showing this API info on an internal site that we explicitly do not want users to have to log into Jira to see/use. It would be nice to be able to get to these images without the requestor having to log in.

Maybe this is a setting we can set for permissions in Jira?
