DSS REST API Search FuturesAndOptionsSearch getting Gold composite weekly options expiries

I want to get expiries for GC weekly options (specifically "0#GMW+", "0#GWW+" and "0#GCW+").

I usually use the datascope select search FuturesAndOptionsSearch rest api.

I use this to get expiries for Equity Options ("0#SPX*.U and "0#SPXW*.U") but it doesn't work for GC weekly options.

{
    "SearchRequest": {
        "FileCodes": null,
        "CurrencyCodes": null,
        "StrikePrice": null,
        "ExchangeCodes": ["CMX"],
        "ExpirationDate": null,
        "IdentifierType": "RICRoot",
        "Identifier": "GCW*",
        "AssetStatus": "Active",
        "FuturesAndOptionsType": "FuturesOnOptions"
    }
}

The response

{
    "@odata.context": "https://selectapi.datascope.refinitiv.com/RestApi/v1/$metadata#Collection(DataScope.Select.Api.Search.FuturesAndOptionsSearchResult)",
    "value": []
}


What is the best way to get the expiries for these chainRICs? Why does the FuturesAndOptionsSearch work on some types of options and not others?


Working examples for 0#SPXW*.U

{
    "SearchRequest": {
        "FileCodes": null,
        "CurrencyCodes": null,
        "StrikePrice": null,
        "ExchangeCodes": ["OPQ"],
        "ExpirationDate": null,
        "IdentifierType": "RICRoot",
        "Identifier": "SPXW*",
        "AssetStatus": "Active",
        "FuturesAndOptionsType": "Options"
    }
}

Hi @una.keller ,

I'm posting the resolution from the support ticket below as a reference

In the API query used the RIC root is incorrect; hence the response has no values extracted. Please find the below RIC roots respectively and the example API request with response attached.

Chain RIC RIC Root
0#GMW+ GM2W
0#GWW+ GW2W
0#GCW+ GC3W

For other looking for an answer, you can use Extractions to get the same data for expired options

{"ExtractionRequest": {
        "@odata.type": "#DataScope.Select.Api.Extractions.ExtractionRequests.HistoricalReferenceExtractionRequest",
        "ContentFieldNames": [
           "RIC", "Security Description", "Put Call Flag", "Expiration Date",  "Strike Price"
        ],
        "IdentifierList": {
            "@odata.type": "#DataScope.Select.Api.Extractions.ExtractionRequests.InstrumentIdentifierList",
            "InstrumentIdentifiers": [
