SAS Code to Obtain Responses from REST web service

Hi all,

I am new to call REST web services from SAS. I have written below code to call it using some papers. I aim to get session_id however it gives me following log and cannot get session id. Can you help me to call it successfully? It is okay to put result into SAS dataset so that I can use session_id for other requests. Also added REST request used in SOAPUI. Thanks!

-----------------------------BEGIN REQUEST CODE----------------------

*** FILENAME and URL will call REST;

%let user=sasdemo;

%let password=SASpwd1;

filename price url 'http://kkbcsd00:8080/SASWIPClientAccess/rest/sessions?userid=&user.&password=&password.' debug;

data price;

  infile price length=len;

  input record $varying200. len;

run;

-----------------------------END REQUEST CODE----------------------

---------------------------LOG---------------------------------

Not sure if it could work out .

1) check proc http

2) check  DS2 package of HTTP

OH, There is a  PROC DS2  . It is added from SAS9.4 . And In it there is a http package also can do PROC HTTP work.

Chack its documentation.Not sure if it could work.
