I didn't actually read the contents of the return carefully. Now that I look, I see I also got a 404 on the QSYS2.HTTP_GET also. Not sure why, but, this example from IBM's website does return good results for me:

select *
from json_table(
'lax $.entries[*]'
columns ("API" varchar(100),
"Description" varchar(100))
) x

Maybe something like this in either STRSQL, or the ACS SQL script tool.
This isn't meant to be useful, just an indicator of whether you could
run either of these functions:

Older method (uses JVM):
URL => CAST('http://www.google.com'
HTTPHEADER => CAST(NULL AS CLOB(1K))) as varchar(2048)) FROM

This works for me including if I change http: to https:

Newer Method:
SELECT cast(qsys2.http_get(
'') as varchar(2048))

This returns a 404 for http: and an error for https:

But we were talking about "green screen" so I just did it in STRSQL.
