This function will allow you to retrieve the matched remote file.

Endpoint for remote file retrieval

Getting result data for a submission

To retrieve the remote file match you will need to get the location and source fields from part [9. Detailed Results] if it is a web match you will be able to retrieve the location and source when you call /check/results you will then use those two fields to search for the file content in the database.

When sending the request, we will need to send the following:

location - Location field from the submission
source - Source field from the submission
