Each REST resource (represented by unique URI) is mapped to an ILE service program and corresponding REST methods to procedures within the service program. Some of the resource methods have several attributes to be received as input path/query/request body parameters but as there is limitation of maximum 7 parameters for ILE service program procedures we cannot represent the resources properly. Using an ILE program as an alternative shall not fit the scenario as resource URI will be different for each method within the resource
