Datastreamws error (HTTPs)
4 views (last 30 days)
I'm trying to use Datafeed toolbox. During my login trought Matlab via datastreamws, it says there is an error concerning http and https protocols:
Error using datastreamws (line 103)
HTTP is an insecure protocol, use HTTPS instead..
I have tryed to check if there were possibilities to change it directly from datastreamws script, but I can not find anything. Do you have any suggestions?
Thank you in advance

Currently, DATASTREAMWS does use HTTP in the endpoint. To work around the issue and use the HTTPS protocol through our interface, use the following code:
d = datastreamws("","","https://product.datastream.com/DSWSClient/V1/DSService.svc/rest/Token?username=user&password=pword")
d.URL = "https://product.datastream.com/DSWSClient/V1/DSService.svc/rest/GetData"
where user and pword are your username and password. After connecting with this syntax, you should be able to make historical requests.
Hope this helps!
