Datastream futures contract retrieval

How can we find all the contracts that are used to construct the continuous series?
Is there a way to automatically generate the tickers for the contracts that are yet to expire?

The question is platform and coding language agnostic.

Thanks for reaching out to us.

As I knew, there are RIC rules used to create future RICs.

RICs can be used in Datastream Web Service.

df = ds.get_data(tickers='<JKBZ2>',fields=['NAME','X'],
                 kind=0)
df

The output is:

However, to confirm these rules or generate other codes, please contact the Refinitiv Datastream Web Service support team directly via MyRefinitiv.
