I am trying to use the Bing's Search API to fetch results however authentication is not working properly.
Here's the code I have written:
$mech = WWW::Mechanize->new();
$url = "https://api.datamarket.azure.com/Bing/SearchWeb/Web?Query=%27
$account_key = "<my key>";
$mech->credentials($url, '', '', $account_key);
Error: "The authorization type you provided is not supported. Only Basic and OAuth are supported".
If I open the URL in browser, it is a Basic Pop Authentication with no Realm, the username should be blank and the password is the account key. I am able to view the JSON response.
However, when I try to connect from the Perl Script it does not work due to authentication issues.
I think my syntax for passing the credentials in the request is correct. Please let me know if there is a correction to be made to make it work.
