BDS are usually defined by a client's market data team and therefore they should have access to the list of BDS defined on a particular Edge server. I am not aware of any way of programmatically querying the Edge server to issue a list of its defined BDS.

The client may find the following useful https://developers.lseg.com/en/article-catalog/article/all-rics-available-on-elektron-realtime

Hello @timothy.kaneshige

I am not sure about the BDS instrument list, but for the Symbol List subscription on the ETA C API, the client can find the description on section 3.2.5 Symbol Lists of the Transport API Development Guide document. The document is available in the SDK package (TransportAPI_C_DevGuide.pdf) and on RTSDK C/C++ - Developer Portal Document page.

The client can also run the ETA Comsumer example to subscribe for Symbol Lists with the following command:

-h {ADS Host} -p {RSSL Port} -s {service name} -sl {Symbol List RIC}

example result from _ADS_CACHE_LIST Symbol List RIC:
