Python: amount of datapoints allowed per request.

Hello everyone,

I'd like to automate tasks in a proper way by taking into account the maximum amount of datapoints per request to Eikon API.

Does anybody know if there's a number to it?

Thanks for your time!

What data are you requesting? There's no single number, I'm afraid. E.g. if you're using get_timeseries method with intraday intervals the response is limited to 50K rows. For interday intervals the limit is 3K rows. These limits are shared between all RICs in the same request. Note that any such limits are subject to change and new limits may be introduced in the future. If you're coding an application around these limits you want to bear this in mind.
