Hello @Insights.Team

The Codebook use DatastreamPy version 1.0.12.

If you installed the library from the PyPI website, the latest version is 2.0.12 which has changed the API interfaces. You can find more detail about the new API interfaces from the PyPI website or Getting started with Python that my colleague has mention above.

import DatastreamPy as dsweb
# loading credentials from a config file
ds = dsweb.DataClient('Config.ini')


# loading credentials directly into the constructor
ds = dsweb.DataClient(None, 'YourID', 'YourPwd')

For the configuration file option you can specify your credentials with the following configuration section:

[credentials]
# Replace YourID and YourPwd values with your specific Datastream credentials.
username=YourID
password=YourPwd

I did a quick test, and it works fine on my end.

@Insights.Team

Thank you for reaching out to us.

Codebook may use the different version of DatastreamPy. The latest version uses the following code

import DatastreamPy as DSWS
ds = DSWS.DataClient(None, username = username, password = password)

For more information, please refer to the Getting started with Python.
