Hello @belkacem.medjroud

I am assuming that your cURL command looks similar to this:

curl --location 'https://api.refinitiv.com/auth/oauth2/v1/token' \
--header 'Accept: application/json' \
--header 'Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded' \
--data-urlencode 'grant_type=password' \
--data-urlencode 'username=<MyBotUserName>' \
--data-urlencode 'password=<myBotPassword>' \
--data-urlencode 'client_id==<myBotAppKey>' \
--data-urlencode 'scope=trapi.messenger' \
--data-urlencode 'takeExclusiveSignOnControl=true'

Please use the App Key for the Client ID. Ensure that EDP API has been checked before generating the app key:

The tool is available in Eikon/Workspace (go to the Search Bar and type APP KEY, then select the AppKey Generator). Please access with your Eikon account, not your bot account.)

Hello @wasin.w

my curl command is as follows :

curl -v -d "grant_type=password&username=<my_username>&password=<my_password>&client_id=<key_my_user>&scope=trapi.messenger&takeExclusiveSignOnControl=true" -H "Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded" -s -X POST "https://api.refinitiv.com/auth/oauth2/v1/token"


in fact i used my personal user , password

i used https://emea1.apps.cp.thomsonreuters.com/apps/AppkeyGenerator to generate the key associated to my personal user because from my local Refinitiv messenger i donot find the APP Key generator

the main issue here is how i can get a bot user, password, i think that my profil initially is not profil dedicated to developer; if this is true how can i fix this and what service from refinitiv can i ask to fix that.


Thanks a lot for your help

Hello @belkacem.medjroud

Thank you for the information. It seems the current user password is the Messenger application account credential, not the Bot account.

If you are interested in the Messenger Bot API, please contact a Refinitiv representative to help you with the Bot access credential.
