})
if query.length > 0
  if uri.query && uri.query.length > 0
    uri.query += '&' + query
  else
    uri.query = query
  end
end

# Create the HTTP object
http = Net::HTTP.new(uri.host, uri.port)
http.use_ssl = true

Python

# Form the URL
url = ''.join(['/pf','/pfaccount/', PROFILE, '/alphabrowser/', 'menu/', LOCALEID])

# Create Connection Instance
conn = http.client.HTTPSConnection("sandbox.ebsco.io")

params = urllib.parse.urlencode({'menuid': '65'})

# Create the Request Headers
headers = {
    'accept': "application/json"
    }

# Send Request  
conn.request("GET", url + '?' + params, headers=headers)

# Get Response
res = conn.getresponse()
