Description

From /api If you are using a robot, library, or other mechanism to access the API, please put a meaningful value in the user agent HTTP header. Good user agent strings include information that would help troubleshoot any problems, such as an e-mail address or website where you can be reached and a name and version of the robot. Examples of good user agent strings: MyRobot/1.0 (email@example.com) MyRobot/1.0 (http://example.com/contact.html) Robots with user agent strings that are empty will receive a 403 Forbidden error message. Those with no contact information risk an IP ban. -- xmlstats@erikberg.com Please Explain the Above Issue.. Sincerely, Usman Hameed

Closing Comment

It is clear. You must set a proper user agent for scripts, bots, etc. or you will be banned/forbidden access to the API. Please email xmlstats@erikberg.com for this type of problem instead of opening an issue.
