Tooltool fetching can now use LDAP credentials from a file

You can now fetch tooltool files by using an authentication file.
All you have to do is append "--authentication-file file" to your tooltool fetching command.
This is important if you want to use automation to fetch files from tooltool on your behalf.
This was needed to allow Android test jobs to run locally since we need to download tooltool files for it.

EDIT: Fixed the tooltool hyperlink

  1. The tooltool link sends to blogger.com.
    Does that mean it's possible to download "private" tooltool stuff without VPN access?

    1. Thanks for letting me know. I will fix the link.

      It is possible with LDAP authentication and hitting a different URL. See this URL replacment:
