Hi @Camillemm7

Are you interested in the following RDP service: https://api.refinitiv.com/message-services/v1/research/subscriptions?

If so, this service is utilizing message queues within the cloud. Because it is a service in the cloud, you should have no problem accessing it from Linux. If your question is whether we provide a library, the only one I believe that offers this capability for Linux is the Refinitiv Data Library for .Net.

Hi @Camillemm7

Can you clarify more detail about the "Real-Time Research API via Refinitiv Data Platform"? Is it the Refinitiv Data Platform (RDP) APIs HTTP /discovery/search/v1 or /discovery/searchlight/v1 API? If so, please be informed that they are the core RDP APIs which are the HTTP web-based APIs, so they can be used on any platform including Linux.

You can find more detail on the RDP APIs page above and the Search - complimentary service page.


If the client wants to use the service via the ease-of-use Refinitiv Data Libraries, there are Python, TypeScript, and .NET libraries for the clients. The Python and TypeScript editions are platform-independent, so they should support Linux OS (I am not sure about the .NET edition).

  • Note: Only the Python edition is Production-ready, the TypeScript and .NET editions are still in beta release.

I hope this information helps.

In addition to the above answers, there are Research samples in Python available in developers forum which would also run on Linux.
