VBD provides functions to get the list of all user packages (Exchanges) and the list of all user package deliveries (Files). Then, the application can retrieve those files. For more information, please refer to REST API Tutorial 2: Retrieve VBD files.

The files are named using the following convention:

Venue-YYYY-MM-DD-Format-Datatype-Part-of-Totalparts.csv.gz

For example: LSE-2016-03-20-NORMALIZEDLL2-DATA-1-of-1.csv.gz

To get all file types, you can refer to the step: Filter the list based on file type (optional) in REST API Tutorial 2: Retrieve VBD files.
