Login to API Playground logs me out of Eikon

Hello,

whenever i try to login to the API playground i get logged out of my Eikon session.

This is extremely frustrating. How am i supposed to read the REST API docs without being kicked out of the very platform i need to research RICS, Fieldnames, etc.?

thanks
Andreas

Thank you for reaching out to us.

You can try to run the APIDocs through Eikon.

I tested it and it worked with my account.

hey @Jirapongse great tip. thank you, that worked!


you happen to have any info regarding the login into the api from my app? i didnt find anything useful when searching for login, signin or auth

what i would want to do is to call the api from my app (which is outside eikon).

thank you

Bonus question:
how do i even sign in to the API (outside the playground, posting to https://api.refinitiv.com) to be even able to call e.g. /discovery/search/v1/ ?
all that while Eikon is running.
