How do I pass the password in the URL for Jupyter?

The jupyter has password based authentication setup. This is set it the config file

c.NotebookApp.password = u'sha1:SOME-SHA-VALUE'

I want to call the metrics endpoint which is exposed at /jupyter/metrics

The documentation indicates on how to pass token for token based authentication. I cannot find anything which specified how I can pass the password in the URL.

This does not seem to work:

curl -kv "https://my-domain/jupyter/metrics?password=MYPassword"
curl -kv "https://my-domain/jupyter/metrics?token=MYPassword"

Is there a way to pass in the password ?
