Datastream Python API Guide regarding necessary firewall settings

Hallo,

we are currently attempting to get the DataStream API running. We would like to use the API to get data from DataStream directly into Python.

Our Server environment - however - is very restrictive, as our firewall is blocking nearly every connection to the internet. Currently, the DataStream API is not working, as ports are blocked.

Therefore, I have to give our IT departement very precise information on necessary modifciations regarding the firewall (e.g. ports / procedures / urls / etc.)

Can you please provide me with a comprehensive and complete guide about all firewall elements that have to be freed up in order to use the DS API?

Best,

Thomas

Hi @thomas.osowski,

The URL is product.datastream.com
The port number is 443.
The procedure is HTTPS and TLS 1.2.
We suggest NOT connecting to IPs but rather the DNS product.datastream.com

Hello @thomas.osowski

I just got information from the Datastream API team. The API does not have any network guides. However, the team confirms my colleague @jonathan.legrand answer is the suggested configuration.
