Appinitialized is called when an application is first initialized.  In  
that app, you could do something like storing the value you want to  
use in ingo in a session variable.  You will still have to alter other  
code in ingo to use this value, however.

The issue for you is that you are trying to use ingo in a non-standard  
way.  The correct way to fix would be to add authentication to Ingo.   
But this is not-insignificant overhead, and I personally don't see the  
advantage to adding this feature (at the expense of performance) when  
its usage would be extremely limited.
