WebDAV Location URL issue when moved from SAS 9.2 to SAS 9.4

We have created a Stored procedure to create some reports and publish them on Web Content Server. Given folder contains day wise reports. As user wants to have access to the stored reports on WebDAV conent server , we have created another stored process which facilitate access to given reports. When we were using SAS 9.2 , this was working perfectly fine. WebDAV location was given like relative path in SAS 9.2 code :

 

%let webDavLoc = /SASPortal/syndication.do?com.sas.portal.ItemId=Content+dav://WebDAV/;

 

     Recently we have migrated to SAS 9.4 version. However when we try to use SAS Stored process as URL Display portlet in SAS portal 4.2 , it's not working.We didn't have any syndication channel defined on old server so that won't be an issue. As a workaround , we have added absolute path as given below :

 

%let webDavLoc = http://sasserverSmiley Tongueort/SASContentServer/repository/default/sasdav;

 

This workaround is giving us access to desired report.   however, every time it asks for user credentials when it try to fetch the report stored on old server. We would like to have single sign on kind of facility over here.  I'm not sure what I am missing here so can you help me to solve this issue :  

 

Stored process link we used to create URL Display portlet :

 

http://serverSmiley Tongueort/SASPortal/Director?_directive=STPRun&_program=/Prod/Stored Processes/ViewHistoricalReports

 

 

Original Stored process code : 

 

%let webDavLoc = /SASPortal/syndication.do?com.sas.portal.ItemId=Content+dav://WebDAV/;
options mlogic mprint symbolgen;

/**/
/*proc printto log='/sasdata/DMM_Data/sp_log.log';*/
/*run;*/

%put Report Type: &rType Output Type: &otype ;
%macro date_r();
data _null_;
length month $15.;
rType = "&rType";
%if &rType = WeeklyReport %then
%do;
call symput('report', 'WeeklyReport' );
/* rDate=intnx('week',"&RDATE"d,0);*/
rdate = "&RDATE"d;
%end;
%else %if &rType = MonthlyReport %then
%do;
call symput('report', 'MonthlyReport' );
rdate = "&RDATE"d;
%end;

rdate = "&RDATE"d;

rdate = "&RDATE"d;

month=put(rdate,monname.);
