There are lots of urls. It's probably not helpful enumerate every
possible combination, but to realize that there are several different
dimensions to a url, which can be mixed and matched (almost) any
One dimension is the way the data is presented back to the client.
"mc" urls expose data as Morse Code. "pim" urls give you a web page
(but with hidden meta-data which points to the other urls). "dav"
urls expose the data over dav, but that's not relevant to this
Another dimension is whether there is a ticket present or not. If
there's a ticket, that is used for authentication, if not then
credentials must be provided.
These two dimensions are more or less independent of each other,
meaning you can have your data in any flavor, and authenticate with a
ticket, or not.
The upshot of all this is that it is (for me anyway) confusing in
technical discussions to call any url a "ticket" url. There are lots
of possible ticketed urls. It would be more precise to say, "A
tickted PIM url" or an "Unticketed Morse Code URL"
