Since you aren't getting many bites specifically in Orion you'll probably have to just adapt an example from any other rest API
The closest orion specific thing I could find to the vbscript style is probably this perl script sample.
When I was first learning to interact with the API I used Postman a lot as well to test my payloads and see the responses I got back that way I could at least verify the json payload I wanted to use without having to worry about syntax and quirks from my scripting language.
