Can I Call CAS Actions Using REST APIs?

On-Demand • Cost: Complimentary

About the webinar

SAS® Viya® uses CAS to perform tasks using CAS actions.

CAS actions can load and transform data, compute statistics, perform analytics and create output.

Each action is configured by specifying a set of input parameters, and running the action creates an action result.

CAS actions can be called from a variety of programming languages (CASL, Python, R, etc.).

In this webinar, we’ll explore calling CAS actions via REST using the CAS REST APIs.

You will learn how to:

  • Explore/navigate CAS action sets and actions documentation.
  • Create properly formatted REST API calls to call CAS actions.
  • Use CAS actions APIs alongside SAS Viya APIs.
  • String multiple CAS actions together, creating end-to-end use cases.
