we are currently using Eikon Desktop to activiate the Eikon Data API in order to receive eikon data via Python (GUI: Spyder, Package "eikon").
Unfortunatelly, we have to migrate to a Windows Server Environment. To my knowledge, Eikon Desktop has no server version, therefore, we can not install or use it in the new environment. However, in order to use the Eikon Data API, Eikon Desktop has to be run on the same local machine. Therefore, we are looking for a solution as otherwise we can not continue using Eikon Data in Python.
To my knowledge, Refintiiv Workspace might be a solution. It can be run via a browser, therefore no installation is needed and we should still be able to use the Eikon Data API and get Data into Python.
So far, we have tested this approach in our current (desktop) environment. However, when I run Refinitiv Workspace, I receive the usual error message in python, that die Eikon Data API is not working (s. below). When I run Eikon Desktop, everything is working fine as usual.
Therefore, I have the following questions:
1) How can we continue using Eikon Data in our new WIndows Server Envrionment?
2) Is Refinitiv Workspace a potential solution to our issue?
3) As exceptions to the firewall in our new envrionment have to be implemented manually:
Which ports / URL and other Procedures are used?
