Type: Feature Request
Please allow Headers map to be added to transport for DataSource
Something like this:

                        transport: {
                            read: "http://localhost/SentryWebAPI/api/Transactions",
                            datatype: "json",
                            headers: { Authorization: "user/password" }

NOTE: This syntax actually works now but does not get propagated with the HTTP request Headers.

I think this would be a simple fix as JQuery.$ajax supports this. It would make custom transport level security possible. There are a lot of requests for security and this would allow a roll-your-own method.

I don't even use the built in methods of pulling information from a service for 2 reasons.
1. Requests are made via GET instead of POST, at least when I inititally started.
2. For the reason mentioned above, can't secure service calls

I ended up building my own Javascript Proxy Generator which supports Headers/POSTs, and set viewmodel datasources myself. All calls including autocomplete end up going through this custom process.

I work in Insurance industry so it needs to be a POST so all data sent is encrypted on HTTPS, and needs to have custom headers to allow for security information to be passed.
