:`(... after looking at this, this is not what i was looking for (but 

This API call seems to make logon on desktop using "the credentials of 
the client. I mean, we can't pass the user credentials (as with 
vdsClient), ovirt takes them from their own. (I think that from user 
that makes the API call).

I need to pass the "username" "password" "domain" data in a way similar 
to this, but be able to do it without registering the user inside ovirt, 
making a call with the users credentials, etc... so back to beginning i 
guess... :(

Anyway, thank you very much for taking your time for helping me ;-)
