How would one get a list of all the users logged in via the API

In a ruby script i tried this... (POST seems odd for this type of thing) got the idea from http://www.splunk.com/base/Documentation/4.1/Developer/RESTCreateSearch

def list_users_logged_in
  xml = splunk_ssl_post_request("/services/authentication/httpauth-tokens", nil, {'authorization' => "Splunk #{session_key}"})
  puts xml
end

which obvs doesn't operate the same as the list_jobs

>> require 'splunk'
=> ["SplunkClient"]
>> client = SplunkClient.new
=> #<SplunkClient:0x7ff442d44fc0>
>> client.list_users_logged_in
<response>
<messages>
<msg type="ERROR">In handler &apos;&apos;: Cannot perform action &quot;POST&quot; without a target name to act on.</msg>
</messages>
</response>
=> nil

So obviously i'm missing something fundamental. Any help would be appreciated.

You can just make a GET request to that URL to get a list of the tokens.
