The disappearance of monthly data.

Executing

get_timeseries("aUSCPI",list("*"),paste0("2003-02-01T00:00:00"), paste0(Sys.Date(),"T00:00:00"))

in R via eikonapir resulted in

1 NA aUSCPI

This isssue has not been emerged before. Getting other timeseries works perfectly.

While inside Eikon API Proxy Data Item Browser my attempts to explore aUSCPI RIC yielded in "No items match your request".

What could be the reason behind this?

Thank you in advance.

Default interval for get_timeseries function is 'daily' which isn't available for 'aUSCPI' item.

You can see this with debug option:

>>> ek.get_timeseries('aUSCPI', debug=True)
('entity: ', 'TimeSeries')
('payload: ', {'startdate': '2017-07-17T10:54:02.245690+02:00', 'enddate': '2017-10-25T10:54:02.246690+02:00', 'rics': [
'aUSCPI'], 'fields': ['*'], 'interval': 'daily'})
Request: {"Entity": {"W": {"startdate": "2017-07-17T10:54:02.245690+02:00", "enddate": "2017-10-25T10:54:02.246690+02:00
", "rics": ["aUSCPI"], "fields": ["*"], "interval": "daily"}, "E": "TimeSeries"}, "ID": "123"}
HTTP Response: 200 - {"timeseriesData":[{"dataPoints":null,"errorCode":"TSIError","errorMessage":"Error: TSIIntervalNotS

,"statusCode":"Error"}]}
('aUSCPI', ': ', 'Error: TSIIntervalNotSupported, ErrorCode: TA-TSIIntervalNotSupported, Fault: TSIError, Description: I
nterval is not supported', '\n')

You can retrieve data with 'monthly' and 'quarterly' intervals:

>>> ek.get_timeseries('aUSCPI', interval='monthly')
aUSCPI        VALUE
Date
2017-07-31  244.786
2017-08-31  245.519
2017-09-30  246.819
>>> ek.get_timeseries('aUSCPI', interval='quarterly')
aUSCPI        VALUE
Date
2017-09-30  245.708
