Below you can find a list of relevant HTTP API endpoints for calling the Actor. To use them, you need to have an Apify account. Replace <YOUR_API_TOKEN> in the URLs with your API token, which you can find under Settings > Integrations in Apify Console. For details, see the API reference .

Run Actor synchronously and get dataset items

Runs this Actor and waits for it to finish. The POST payload including its Content-Type header is passed as INPUT to the Actor (usually application/json). The HTTP response contains the Actor's dataset items, while the format of items depends on specifying dataset items' format parameter.

POST
https://api.apify.com/v2/acts/alexey~google-lens/run-sync-get-dataset-items?token=<YOUR_API_TOKEN>

Hint: This endpoint can be used with both POST and GET request methods, but only the POST method allows you to pass input.
