in reply to Bing API Authentication in Perl

If you are going to use the four argument credentials, you need to pass the right data into it. Location is <host>:<port> as documented in LWP::UserAgent.

Try this totally untested piece of code and see if you get better results.

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use WWW::Mechanize; use Crypt::SSLeay; my $mech = WWW::Mechanize->new(); # Don't pass the full URL as the location in the call to credentials! my $server = ''; my $url = "https://$server/Bing/SearchWeb/Web?Query=%27Xbox%27&$top=1 +0&$format=JSON"; my $loc = "$server:443"; my $account_key = "<my key>"; # Yes, WWW::Mech still supports LWP::UserAgent's four arg credentials $mech->credentials($loc, '', '', $account_key); $mech->get($url); print $mech->content();

Update: After I posted this, I realized that you were using https so I updated the port from 80 to 443.
