instrument list / template / schedule | GUI vs API

Hi,

To schedule an extraction, we have to

- create an instrument list to define the scope

- create template to define the result format.

same action on both GUI and API.

I would like to know if it's possible to crate a template in GUI, and then use it in API mode?

Thanks in advance for your answer.

Hi @davly182,

Yes, you can absolutely do that with the TRTH REST API. I recommend the REST API Tutorial 11: GUI control calls: immediate extract tutorial that explains everything you need to know in that domain (and even more). If you develop in java I also recommend the Programming without SDK Tutorial that explains how to use the API in java.

To add a few more details:

  • You can create / update / delete instrument lists using the GUI or the API. That is also valid for report templates.
  • Items you created using the GUI (or the API) can be re-used from the API (or the GUI).
  • The java sample DSS2ImmediateScheduleIntradayBarsTRTHClient (available in the downloads) contains methods that illustrate the use of the API calls to retrieve an instrument list (or report template) by name.
