    To help me parse what is getting started and where with the property, can you add a comma
or reword the sentence?

> The REST API docs don't document how to do authentication. Looks like HEAD params "security-username"
and "security-password" are supported but undocumented in the REST API.
> There is a comment about REST auth in this link: https://geode.apache.org/docs/guide/11/managing/security/implementing_authentication.html
> Also, the docs seem to imply that you pass usr/passwd in the http headers such as 'security-username'
and 'security-password'. However, it only works using HTTP Basic Authentication, which Spring
must be translating on the server side into the 'security-username' and 'security-password'
params.
