Eikon API by giving condition as = R

Hi Team,

Can you please help me to pull data from Eikon API by giving condition as = R and it should pull Record Type of 21 from that, Example RIC(DJX50N1W=R).

Hi @Shalini.YPatted ,

If you have an access to Eikon Data API, you should have an access to RD Library desktop session. Hence, you can try function search of RD library. Its quick start guide can be found here

import refinitiv.data as rd
rd.open_session()

ric_df = rd.discovery.search(
    view = rd.discovery.Views.SEARCH_ALL,
    top = 10,
    filter = "( RIC eq '*=R')",
    select = "RIC"
)

ric_list = ric_df['RIC'].to_list()

ric_list

parameter top is The maximum number of documents to retrieve, so you can adjust this to get more number of result

Then convert the RICs returned to a list to be an input of the next step

rd.get_data(ric_list, [ 'RECORDTYPE'])

An example of RD library search function can be found at https://github.com/LSEG-API-Samples/Example.DataLibrary.Python/blob/main/Examples/1-Access/EX-1.01.06-Search.ipynb

Hello @Shalini.YPatted

The code should be like this:

import refinitiv.data.eikon as ek
ek.set_app_key('APP_KEY') #'DEFAULT_CODE_BOOK_APP_KEY' if you are on CodeBook


df, err = ek.get_data(['DJX50N1W=R'], [ 'RECORDTYPE'])
df

Result:

Please note that you can use the Data Item Browser (Seach "DIB" on your Eikon/Workspace), then input your item code (RIC Code) and you can search all available fields that the item provide as follows:

Hi Wasim,

Thanks for checking.

Any RIC that ends with = R, I want code to pick = R and produce record type for all of those RICs

is it possible to get the output from Eikon API by giving condition.

Example RIC (DJX50N1W=R) which ends with = R.
