How to use Splunk JavaScript SDK to return SID from Splunk search?

Hi,
I am trying to use the Splunk JavaScript SDK in order to return a SID from a search. I used the code that's provided in the documentation or mentioned in the forum.
```

      let http = new splunkjs.JQueryHttp();
      let service = new splunkjs.Service(http,{
      username: "@#$@#$",
      password: "@#$@#",
      scheme: "https",
      host: "digitalsplunk.test.com/services/search/jobs",
      port: "8089",
      version: "7.1.0"
    });

    // First, we log in
    service.login(function (err, success) {
      // We check for both errors in the connection as well
      // as if the login itself failed.
      if (err || !success) {
        console.log('error is ' + err)
        console.log(
          "Login failure. Please check your server hostname and authentication credentials."
        );
        //done(err || "Login failed");
        console.log('logon failure')
        return;
      } else  if (success) {
        console.log('logon successful')
      }```

This code messes up the URL. This is what the url looks like using the search object
https://digitalsplunk.test.com/services/search/jobs:8089/services/auth/login?output_mode=json
And this is what it should look like
https://digitalsplunk.test.com:8089/services/search/jobs?output_mode=json

I also tried making an angular service (without the Splunk SDK) and made a post request, it didn't work either. If anyone could help me fetch the SID, I would greatly appreciate it

I ended up using node js to solve this issue. The javascript sdk just wasn't working (maybe due to corporate security issues)
