Hi,

 

When a stored process called via SPWA will generate drill down URL's pointing to other stored processes, I know that instead of hardcoding the server name  and port:

 

http://your.server:8080/SASStoredProcess/do?

You can soft code it with:

 

http://&_srvname:&_srvport/SASStoredProcess/do?  

 

That obviously makes code more portable when you change servers.

 

That said, is there an easy way to detect whether the session is using http or httpS ?   I still have that part of my URL hard coded, which means when a server changed to https:, I had to update the code.  I would like to soft code the protocol as well as the server name and port.

 

Thanks,

--Q.

It is "relative" to protocol://server:port

 

You can find some examples of using _URL here:

For example:

 

nexturl = "&_URL?_program=/WebApps/MyWebApp/Print Color" || '&fname=' || urlencode("&FNAME");

Can you get by with using the _URL reserved macro variable?

Thanks @Vince . 

 

When I looked in _URL, I expected so see something like:

http://your.server:8080/SASStoredProcess/do?

What I actually see is:

 

/SASStoredProcess/do

 

Okay, it just hit me.  Is that a relative URL, so no need to the http and server and port is not necessary? 

 

So I could I could use it as the "root" URL for chaining stored processes?  So tha's what I should have been using all along for chaining stored processes??? sigh.
