python syntax to get changed RIC

Hello everyone,


I recently faced the RIC changed issue, some companies changed their ticker symbol which leads my data retrieval and maintenance get in trouble. I'm seeking assistance in obtaining a list of RIC changes, such as FB.OQ --> META.OQ on June 9, 2022

KERN.OQ --> GRYP.OQ on Feb 2024

SASI.OQ --> NTRP.OQ on 13 MAR 2024


If anyone could kindly provide me with the Python syntax to address this using the Eikon API, it would be greatly appreciated.


Here's my working environment:

1) Eikon API

2) Pyhon

3) Macbook Pro


Any advice or guidance would be immensely helpful.

Thank you in advance! :)

Hi @st.lee0166,

In this case, please use PermIDs, they were created to withstand such changes. You can find out more about them on the DIB:

There are several types as you can see, let us know if any of them fulfil your request.

Hi @jonathan.legrand ,

Thank you so much for your reply :D

Let me confirm if my thinking is right, so this PermID keeps following with the company even it has changed its RIC, right? say FB.OQ and META.OQ get the same PermID?


Thanks again for your help :)

Hi @st.lee0166,

Yes, that is my understanding. You can find out more here: PermID

Hi @jonathan.legrand ,

Many thanks for your reply :)

The PermID is quite helpful, but when I insert the PermID, it only shows the latest RIC, such as META.OQ. Is there any method to obtain the historical list of RIC changes? For example, if I insert 4297297477, could I receive a list including FB.OQ, META.OQ, and their respective rename dates?

thank you again :)
