I am trying to get data in XML format from an API. But the data I get form this API is always in JSON format.
I confirmed with the API's developers that it can return data in both JSON and XML depending on the request
Here is the code I am using:
FILENAME QAOS "/haexample/Example_Dir/Example.xml";
OUT = QAOS
What am I missing here? Please help.

Most of the time you can take the API call, post it in a browser URL bar and get the response. Make sure that works first and then verify that PROC HTTP works. FYI - I used it last week so it definitely works as intended.
Another check, make sure your version of SAS supports what you're trying to do but I think PROC HTTP is pretty old. This is unlikely...but if you're not sure post your SAS version (i.e. 9.4 TS1M4)
