DSS does not return CUSIP, ISIN, or SEDOL

I am attempting to retrieve the CUSIP, ISIN, and SEDOL of a list of instruments but I am not getting any values being returned. Attempted this using tutorial 8 : T&C On Demand Extraction where the default fields are CUSIP etc. and I am still not receiving any results either.

Looking through the web client, attempting a manual report also does not return any results, so could this be an issue with my account or the server?

@jayzoww, can you please share the details of your request, in particular the body (including the list of instruments). That will help us debug.

static string[] CreateRequestedFieldNames()
        {
            string[] requestedFieldNames = { "RIC", "CUSIP", "ISIN", "SEDOL", "Issuer OrgID", "Currency Code" };
            return requestedFieldNames;
        }
static InstrumentIdentifier[] PopulateInstrumentIdentifiers()
        {
InstrumentIdentifier[] instrumentIdentifiers = new InstrumentIdentifier[1];
            instrumentIdentifiers[0] = new InstrumentIdentifier
            {
                IdentifierType = IdentifierType.Ric,
                Identifier = "IBM.N"
            };
            return instrumentIdentifiers;
        }

I have also found that the web client does not return those requested fields either with a manual report.

@jayzoww, Tutorial 8 is a Composite extraction, whereas Tutorial 7 is a T&C.

I have just tried running the Postman calls (from the downloadable collection) for both Tutorials 7 and 8, they work fine and return data for IBM.N as expected.

Can you try running the tutorial calls from Postman ? I'd like to understand if the issue is related to your account or to the way you submit the request.

Turns out this is an account privileges error, not an error on the part of the server or the request.
