Downloading excel file from eikon link with python

Hello, I would like to know if it is possible to download an excel file from eikon using an eikon link using requests or other module in python. The issue seems to be when I save the file through python it is encrypted or corrupted and probably requires a token to be able to download or is it just not possible?

Thank you

I think that you can't do it.

In order to access that file, you need to login to Eikon but there is no API or library for login to Eikon.
