Can Refinitiv Workspace INSEAD account access RDP data using API endpoints?

I have a Refinitiv Workspace account. How Can I check if I can use these credentials to access the Refnitiv Data Platform account as I need to use some API endpoints from RDP? I want to retrieve data of current and historical officers and directors.

Hi @junfei.lei

Your Workspace account ID is for your use only and can only access data services offered within the desktop. If you need access to RDP, you will to reach out to your LSEG account manager - your Workspace account will not give direct access to RDP.

With your Workspace account, you should be able to retrieve officers and directors details using the rd.get_data() API call. I would suggest you access the DIB (Data Item Browser) within Workspace or alternatively access the "Get Help & Support" (F1) option - they will involve a content specialist to help determine the specific fields to retrieve this information.
