I use R to Access Eikon API, but report error, anyone can help?

Hi,

I am using Eikon API in R. Below are my code (I tried two methods):

> eikonapir::set_proxy_port(9000L)

> eikonapir::set_app_id('<App Key>')

> get_symbology(list("MSFT.O", "GOOG.O", "IBM.N"),"RIC",list("ISIN"),raw_ouput = FALSE,debug=FALSE)

Error in print.default("HTTP Error, code= ", response$status_code, sep = "") :

invalid printing digits 403

and

> RD <- RDConnect('<App Key>', PythonModule = "JSON")

 > 
 > test <- RDPsearch(RD, query =  "AAPL.O", select = "ContractType,RIC")
 http://localhost:9000/api/rdp/discovery/search/v1/
 AAPL.OSearchAllContractType,RIC
 Error in `httr2::req_perform()`:
 ! HTTP 403 Forbidden.
 Run `rlang::last_trace()` to see where the error occurred.

@Chaoran.Di Hi Thanks for your question and sorry to hear about your issue. That library is not being actively managed - can I suggest you use the more modern open source but actively managed R library called Refinitiv R - you can download it on github from here. Its very well documented. I hope this can help.

Hello @Chaoran.Di

I am not the Eikon API R expert, but the "HTTP 403 Forbidden" error indicates that you are encountering a permission issue with your request.

I strongly suggest you contact your LSEG repetitive to verify your Workspace account permission.

Thanks, my client's Eikon is Eikon with DFO, I'm sure she can access Eikon API with this version, is there any possibility that not the permission but because they use R to access the data? Thanks in advance.

Hello @Chaoran.Di

Please be informed that the R libraries like Eikon API R and Refinitiv R are not LSEG/Refinitiv products. They are community products that are not supported by Refinitiv/LSEG.

The client can submit the Eikon API R issue to the developer directly via the GitHub - Issue page.

The Official LSEG libraries to access Workspace/Eikon and RDP content set are as follows:

Can the client replicate the issue with the Data Library for Python or Eikon Data API?

I strongly suggest the client try the code on the CodeBook app in the Workspace/Eikon desktop application.
