By default when you load the App Controller page, you are prompted to enter a username in the format domain\username and enter your password.
However you can enable App Controller to use your logged on credentials to automatically sign in. This is actually documented in the Online Help .
You just need to enable integrated authentication on the /api node of the App Controller website in IIS.
Directly from the help pages:
