Looking at the stack trace, I assume you are using IronPython script to make a webrequest and this request seems to be failing with a 400 bad request error. May be you can look into the values that are being passed to you request. Also a fiddler trace might be helpful in this case

Below is the code that I am using. I am new to web technologies. I have a hunch that it is an authentication error. I get this error once I send the request via a webplayer. This code works on spotfire analyst, when i am not on a web browser. The ultimate goal is to use a third party api in spotfire to trigger the execution of a cloud application .  import clr



import System

from System import DateTime

from System.Data import DataSet, DataTable

from System.IO import StreamReader, StreamWriter, MemoryStream, SeekOrigin

from System.Net import HttpWebRequest

from System.Web.Script.Serialization import JavaScriptSerializer

from Spotfire.Dxp.Data import DataType, DataTableSaveSettings

from Spotfire.Dxp.Data.Import import TextFileDataSource, TextDataReaderSettings# get stock quotes data in JSON format from Yahoo Finance API

tickerSymbol = Document.Properties["TickerSymbol"]

Months = Document.Properties["Months"]

startDate = DateTime.Today.AddMonths(-Months).ToString("yyyy-MM-dd")

endDate = DateTime.Today.ToString("yyyy-MM-dd")


uri = "https://quantprice.herokuapp.com/api/v1.1/scoop/periodtickers=" + tickerSymbol + "&begin=" + startDate 

webRequest = HttpWebRequest.Create(uri)response = webRequest.GetResponse()

streamReader = StreamReader(response.GetResponseStream())

jsonData = streamReader.ReadToEnd()

js = JavaScriptSerializer()

dataDict = js.Deserialize(jsonData,object)

myColName = []

for val in dataDict["datatable"]["columns"]:

    #print val["name"]



textData =     "t".join(myColName) + "rn"# build a string representing the data in tab-delimited text format

#textData = "SymboltDatetClosern" 

for quote in dataDict["datatable"]["data"]:

    #print "t".join(str(val) for val in quote)

    textData += "t".join(str(val) for val in quote) + "rn"# make a stream from the string

stream = MemoryStream()

writer = StreamWriter(stream)



stream.Seek(0, SeekOrigin.Begin)# set up the text data reader

readerSettings = TextDataReaderSettings()

readerSettings.Separator = "t"


readerSettings.SetDataType(0, DataType.String)

readerSettings.SetDataType(1, DataType.String)

readerSettings.SetDataType(2, DataType.String)

readerSettings.SetDataType(3, DataType.String)

readerSettings.SetDataType(4, DataType.String)

readerSettings.SetDataType(5, DataType.String)

readerSettings.SetDataType(6, DataType.Date)

readerSettings.SetDataType(7, DataType.Currency)

readerSettings.SetDataType(8, DataType.Currency)

readerSettings.SetDataType(9, DataType.Currency)

readerSettings.SetDataType(10, DataType.Currency)

readerSettings.SetDataType(11, DataType.Real)# create a data source to read in the stream

textDataSource = TextFileDataSource(stream, readerSettings)# add the data into a Data Table in Spotfire

if Document.Data.Tables.Contains("Stock Data"):

     Document.Data.Tables["Stock Data"].ReplaceData(textDataSource)


     newTable = Document.Data.Tables.Add("Stock Data", textDataSource)

     tableSettings = DataTableSaveSettings (newTable, False, False)

Can you try the below and see if we can gather more information

1. try/except to read more information from the exception

try:    response = webRequest.GetResponse()except Exception , e:    print e.ToString()

2. In general an IronPython script triggerred in WebPlayer is executed on the Node Manager machine, as test if possible try to install an Analyst on Nodemanager machine, open the analysis and test with the script executes fine
