Hi,
I am trying to retrieve data from datastream. Once I attempt use my credential for the access (c = datastreamws(username,password)), I receive an error message.
Error using datastreamws
HTTP is an insecure protocol, use HTTPs instead.
Does anyone know if the error has something to do with my computer security or the function itself? How can it be fixed? Thanks a lot!

Hello,
Currently, datastreamws does use HTTP in the endpoint. To work around the issue and use the HTTPS protocol through our interface, you can 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.

Thanks for this, I attempted to use it but now i get another error.
Error using datastreamws
User 'blabla' not entitled to ClientApi service..
I guess now the error has something to do with my university's access to datastream and not https
