I have deployed an AzureML published experiment with deployed web service. I tried to use the sample code provided in the configuration page, but universal apps do not implement Http.Formatting yet, thus I couldn't use postasjsonasync.

I tried to follow the sample code as much as possible, but I'm getting statuscode of 415 "Unsupported Media Type", What's the mistake I'm doing?

var client = new HttpClient();

client.DefaultRequestHeaders.Authorization = new AuthenticationHeaderValue("Bearer", apiKey);

// client.BaseAddress = uri;

var scoreRequest = new


            Inputs = new Dictionary<string, StringTable>() {



                        new StringTable()


                            ColumnNames = new [] {"Direction", "meanX", "meanY", "meanZ"},

                            Values = new [,] {  { "", x.ToString(), y.ToString(), z.ToString() },  }




            GlobalParameters = new Dictionary<string, string>() { }


 var stringContent = new StringContent(scoreRequest.ToString());

 HttpResponseMessage response = await client.PostAsync(uri, stringContent);

You'll need to serialize the object to a JSON string (I recommend using NewtonSoft.Json to make it easier) and set the content type accordingly. Here's an implementation I'm using in my UWP apps (note that _client is an HttpClient):

public async Task<HttpResponseMessage> PostAsJsonAsync<T>(Uri uri, T item)


        var itemAsJson = JsonConvert.SerializeObject(item);

        var content = new StringContent(itemAsJson);

        content.Headers.ContentType = new MediaTypeHeaderValue("application/json");

        return await _client.PostAsync(uri, content);
