Accessing API read-only from build worker without a token

would it be possible to use the API without a token in a read-only manner from the build workers?

I have two use cases for this and they both should run also (or especially) on pull requests without disclosing any "all-or-nothing" credentials.

One use case is as follows:
When doing a PR-build, compare the set of passed/failed/skipped/ignored tests or compiler warnings to the ones for the latest build of the master-branch. Post a comment on the PR on GitHub with the counts (+/-).

The other use case is testing on two OSes:
Re-using the artifact from one configuration in another "configuration" that runs the "Visual Studio 2017"-image. This way we could test both on Win2012R2 and on Win2016.

    Of course, whatever public project you can see on UI can be accessed via API without any credentials.

    Thanks. Everything works as expected. It was not clear to me from the documentation that anonymous access is possible. Maybe you can add some sentence stating that here:

    Unfortunately I encountered two issues with the new image, but I am sure they can get solved somehow.

    As always, thanks for your fantastic support!

    Hm, what happened to those issues? Both links give me 404.

    See them now. Not sure what was that - must be a glitch.
