"I am trying to make a request using the following URL and Keys.

URL : https://eastus.api.cognitive.microsoft.com/bing/v7.0/entities/

KEYS:

mkt:en-US
q:restaurants

However, I get the following response - (even though there is a valid value for the mkt parameter in the request)

{
    ""_type"": ""ErrorResponse"",
    ""errors"": [
        {
            ""_type"": ""Error"",
            ""code"": ""InvalidRequest"",
            ""subCode"": ""ParameterInvalidValue"",
            ""message"": ""Parameter has invalid value."",
            ""moreDetails"": ""Entity Search is not allowed for this market."",
            ""parameter"": ""mkt"",
            ""value"": """"
        }
    ]
}

Why is the service not reading the ""mkt"" parameter from the request ?"

    It looks like the mkt parameter is not passed as a query parameter instead it is used as a header which is not valid. Could you please pass the same as query parameter and check if the request succeeds.
