Open Session Error (python) -- refinitiv-data version 1.2.0

I receive the following error when attempting to open a session using refinitiv-data v1.2.0:

"[error 0 - none] send() got an unexpected keyword argument 'follow_redirects' "

I use the refinitiv-data.config.json file to open a platform.rdp session. The exact command, rd.open_session(), works with version 1.1.1 of the library, but not with the new version. Any ideas on how to fix this? For now, I'm just continuing to use the previous version.


Thanks

@qbe.ds

Regarding the "send() got an unexpected keyword argument 'follow_redirects' " error, it may relate to the version of httpx used by Python. I checked the CHANGELOG.md file and found that the follow_redirects argument was introduced in httpx 0.20.0. Please make sure that you are using httpx 0.20.0 or above.

>>> import httpx
>>> httpx.__version__
'0.22.0'
>>>

The Refinitiv Data Library1.2.0 uses this argument when calling the send method.

Thanks @Jirapongse, that was the issue.

Hi @qbe.ds ,


I can successfully open a platform session in RD 1.2.0 using refinitiv-data.config.json. Please note that to use rd.open_session() directly you would need "platform.rdp" to be set up as a default in your config file, otherwise you can use rd.open_session(name='platform.rdp').

I hope this helps.


Best regards,

Haykaz

Hi @qbe.ds ,

I can use the same code with you with the RD library version 1.2.0 and can open the session properly. Could you please check if the issue still persists? If so, please get the debug log of the RD library and put it here for further investigation (debug log can be set following step 2.2 ) Refinitiv Data Library (RD Library) in Eikon Data API and Refinitiv Data Library - Troubleshooting)
