On-Demand • Cost: Complimentary

About the webinar

Technology is moving to the cloud and open source.

APIs make this expansion possible.

However, before using APIs with open source technology and developing applications, you need to authenticate to SAS.

Join this webinar to learn the various techniques to connect to SAS Viya.

To access SAS data, services and APIs from outside SAS, you must first log in.

This requires registering clients and creating access tokens to allow authentication to and authorization of SAS.

SAS expert Joe Furbee will show you how.  

You'll learn:

  • The basics of OAuth, the industry-standard protocol used to get access to protected data from an application.
  • How SAS Viya uses these standards, with a demonstration of how developers and administrators can use simple commands such as curl to authenticate and access SAS Viya APIs.
  • How to connect to SAS from various open source languages and technologies such as Postman and Jupyter Notebook.
