instrument tickers

Hi, how can i quickly transform yfinance ticker symbols to that of refinitiv?

For example AAPL, and some other symbols. I notice that not all of your instruments end with ".O" which makes it difficult for me to just write a function to convert yfinance symbols to that of refinitiv

We provide a method in the Refinitiv Data Library for Python to convert tickers to RICs.

response = symbol_conversion.Definition(
    symbols=["AAPL","MSFT"],
    from_symbol_type=symbol_conversion.SymbolTypes.TICKER_SYMBOL,
    to_symbol_types=[
        symbol_conversion.SymbolTypes.RIC
    ],
).get_data()


response.data.df

The output is:

You can also refer to the sample on GitHub.
