The "|" character is called a pipe in a terminal/shell. When you type
cmd1 | cmd2 into a shell it means "use the output of cmd1 as the input for cmd2". So by using
curl ... | json you are taking the response from the curl request and piping it into a command named json. However there is no such command in the standard shell environments so it causes an error. Since you haven't said what you're trying to accomplish we can't help you much further but you can always save the response to a file with the
> character and process it later:
curl ... >response.json
