Where can one find the authentication record ID in the WAS module, so that I can include it while launching scans from the API?
I am sure I am simply overlooking something.... but I have not been able to locate this.
To check the list of authentication records available for a web application and get their corresponding ID, you will need to use the webapp get API call (/rest/3.0/get/was/webapp/<id of your web application>), which will give you the details of your web application, with the list of the authentication records (in the authRecords element) and their ID
Note that in WAS UI 3.1 release, planned for Q4 this year, we will update authentication records logic so that they can be shared between different web applications. For the occasion, we will introduce a new API to easily get the list of all your authentication records and manage them.
This way you will be able to get the ID either by using this new API (using search or get calls) or via the UI when opening the authentication record in view mode.
Hope this helps.
