BARS authentication, to MLA

Have a question about BARS authentication.

After installing BARS 4.0(14) with CM 4.2(3) I was

trying to login into the system by URL https://<pub_ip>/bars.

My cluster is MLA-enabled and I used MLA credentials (CCMAdministrator with its password).

I was surprised when MLA CCMAdministrator accound hadn't been validated by the system.

Thus I tried NT account (Administrator) credentials, and it worked.

The question is why ?

Is it possible to configure MLA CCMAdministrator or other DC Directory account to perform BARS operations ?

From what I know this is not possible. The reason being is I believe that since its a service, they use that same login to tie to the service. As far as I know logging into BARS has only ever been possible using a local administrative account.
