Is it possible to automatically login to a web app I have deployed using a POST request?
What would the code look like?

As in the Google account login, then no. You might want to consider a different deployment option (e g. run as script owner) ... or would the execution API work for you https://developers.google.com/apps-script/api/how-tos/execute

I'm accessing a web app from another script. I had deployed the web app with access limited to "myself" but of course that needs the other script to login first.
Let me look into this API you suggested...

Both the calling application and the project deployed as an API need to share the same Cloud Platform (GCP) project.  So, it's basically, Google to Google, not for example, PayPal to Google.  Unless there is something I don't understand.

I was thinking of Google to Google
