https://www.datazoa.com/api/apimain.asp?func=SeriesFromGL&glname=YourGroupName&apikey=YourAPIKey

in your browser's address bar. The results will require some reformatting, but it's fast and effective.

(curl "https://www.datazoa.com/api/apimain.asp?func=SeriesFromGL&glname=YourGroupName&apikey=YourAPIKey | ConvertFrom-Json).payload
