Using a pre-existing instrument list and report template on DSS

Hello,

I have 2 questions on DSS REST API:

1 - In the REST API Tutorial 9: On Demand extraction: instrument list -- we have a section showing how we can use instrument list existing in GUI in API. Is it possible to use pre-existing report template as well? If yes can you please provide sample format as shown in the tutorial for input list example as shown below.

"IdentifierList": {

"@odata.type": "#DataScope.Select.Api.Extractions.ExtractionRequests.InstrumentListIdentifierList",

"InstrumentListId":"0x077f534f54076163"


2 - Can I use pre existing input and report template id's in GUI while creating a scheduled API extraction as the tutorial only mentions about on demand extractions.

Thank you for reaching out to us.

1. No. With on-demand extractions, the report template is specified in the"@odata.type" property.

{
  "ExtractionRequest": {
    "@odata.type": "#DataScope.Select.Api.Extractions.ExtractionRequests.EndOfDayPricingExtractionRequest",
    "ContentFieldNames": [
      "Ask Price",
      "Asset Category",
...

2. Yes, you can use the pre-existing input and report template id's to create schedule extractions. Please refer to the REST API Tutorial 10: GUI control calls: immediate extract tutorial.

The tutorial shows how to create an immediate extraction with the ListId and ReportTemplateId through the REST API. The endpoint URL is https://selectapi.datascope.refinitiv.com/RestApi/v1/Extractions/Schedules and the body contains.

{
  "Name": "myImmediateSchedule",
  "Recurrence": {
    "@odata.type": "#DataScope.Select.Api.Extractions.Schedules.SingleRecurrence",
    "IsImmediate": true
  },
  "Trigger": {
    "@odata.type": "#DataScope.Select.Api.Extractions.Schedules.ImmediateTrigger",
    "LimitReportToTodaysData": true
  },
  "ListId": "0x080833021dedf0a1",
  "ReportTemplateId": "0x0808321dd61df091"
}
