Hello Alibek, have you done anything with Custom Vision and using ASP.NET for predictions?

Hi @jeffyatesconduent. Sorry for late response. Are you saying about API calls or Exported Model usage? I have slightly touched API calls part using ASP.NET so ready to discuss the issue with you


Have a nice day

@jeffyatesconduent  there is an excellent documentation with sample code in C#. If you are working with .Net then using official Custom Vision .NET SDK.

Check it out


Hope you will find this useful

Hi @Alibek_Jakupov thank you for the reply.  Yes I have seen that documentation and I have gotten the console app to work but still struggling getting an ASP.NET app to work.  Code is failing at the call to the prediction.  I'm pretty sure I have prediction key and iteration correct in the call but still failing.  I was wondering if you had any working code for me to take a look at.
