Alternatively, API test tools such as postman can be used or with some simple scripting the API is accessible with a small amount of code, a c# example is below

Note that the header for the subscription key is named Ocp-Apim-Subscription-Key

using System.Net.Http.Headers;
using System;
using Newtonsoft.Json;

Console.WriteLine("Hello, World!");

using var client = new HttpClient();
var url = "";

var urlParameters = "?brandmpn=toshiba ct-8541";

client.BaseAddress = new Uri(url);

// Add an Accept header for JSON format.
new MediaTypeWithQualityHeaderValue("application/json"));

// Add header for subscription key
client.DefaultRequestHeaders.Add("Ocp-Apim-Subscription-Key", "ADD_YOUR_KEY_HERE");

// Get data response
var response = client.GetAsync(urlParameters).Result;
if (response.IsSuccessStatusCode)
// Parse the response body
var result = response.Content.ReadAsStringAsync().Result;

var dynamicObject = JsonConvert.DeserializeObject<dynamic>(result)!;
foreach (var item in dynamicObject.aspects)
Console.WriteLine("{0}:{1}",, item.values?[0]);
Console.WriteLine("{0} ({1})", (int)response.StatusCode, response.ReasonPhrase);
