Apologies, the parameter to see the payload is debug=True
Thank you for the quick reply. Say that I wanted the unemployment rate for Greece 2013-2016. Would that be possible? What is the Eikon Platform?
Edit: Or could this possibly be done through the get_data function?
@tomas.kourimYou can use Eikon application or Data Item Browser for data discovery. In command/search bar in Eikon Toolbar type in 'Greece unemployment rate'. You can click on items in the autosuggest list to figure out what RIC to use (there's typically more than one measure for unemployment in a given country). Once you figured out which RIC you need, you can use it in get_timeseries method, e.g. ek.get_timeseries('GRUNR=ECI',interval='monthly',start_date='2013-01-01',end_date='2017-01-01').
And then if you're so inclined you can add debug=True parameter to get_timeseries to print the value for 'entity' and 'payload' parameters, which you can use in send_json_request method to retrieve the same data that you requested through get_timeseries.
