So I notice the following and I have no way to contact MS. So since they don t make it easy for me to post... I ll tell them the issue here
I have a migrated account (so old bing api account)
Doing a Bing Search API call to https://api.datamarket.azure.com with this path /Bing/Search/v1/Web will return a 403.. doing it /Bing/SearchWeb/v1/Web works fine
I have a new Azure account
Doing a Bing Search API call to /Bing/SearchWeb/v1/Web will return a 403.. doing it /Bing/Search/v1/Web works
Clearly something is messed up somewhere and not documented correctly. is this a known issue?
The only way I figured it out was because your tools for testing the API showed a different URL which I was quite puzzled about..
Do you want to use new Bing API which hosted in Azure Market place? I think you can got your account key from here:
And 403 error always means there's something wrong with authentication or authorization, would you like to share the error or exception message, and how do you access the bing search API (You can post some testing code on this thread).
Hope this helps.
