How to perform on-demand Terms and Conditions extract using IdentifierType.Ticker

Is it possible to use IdentifierType.Ticker when performing an on-demand extraction? I'm using the following code:

var ExtractionsContext = new ExtractionsContext(new Uri("https://hosted.datascopeapi.reuters.com/RestApi/v1/"), "<your user id>", "<your password>");
            //Create new report template with conditions
            var extractionRequest = new TermsAndConditionsExtractionRequest {
                IdentifierList = InstrumentIdentifierList.Create(
                    new[] { new InstrumentIdentifier { Identifier = "MSFT", IdentifierType = IdentifierType.Ticker } }, null, false),
                ContentFieldNames = new[] 
                {
                    "Ticker",
                    "Asset Type Description",
                    "Security Description",
                    "Issue Date",
                    "RIC",
                    "Asset Status Description",
                    "Asset SubType Description",
                    "Currency Code Description",},
            };
            //Extract - NOTE: If the extraction request takes more than 30 seconds the async mechansim will be used.  See Key Mechanisms 
            var extractionResult = ExtractionsContext.ExtractWithNotes(extractionRequest);
            var extractedRows = extractionResult.Contents;
            //Output
            if (!extractedRows.Any())
                Debug.WriteLine("No rows returned");
            else {
                foreach (var row in extractedRows)
                    Debug.WriteLine(
                        row.Identifier + " (" + row.IdentifierType + ") " +
                        String.Join(", ", row.DynamicProperties.Select(dp => dp.Key + "=" + dp.Value)));
            }
            //Output Notes
            Debug.WriteLine("NOTES:");
            foreach (var note in extractionResult.Notes)
                Debug.WriteLine(note);

The results come back with the following message: MSFT (Ticker) NOTES: All identifiers were invalid. No extraction performed.

Is it not possible? If not, any alternate approach would be most welcome.

I have used Search/InstrumentSearch with Postman and it works fine with Ticker.

{
  "SearchRequest": {
    "InstrumentTypeGroups": [
      "CollatetizedMortgageObligations",
      "Commodities",
      "Equities",
      "FuturesAndOptions",
      "GovCorp",
      "MortgageBackedSecurities",
      "Money",
      "Municipals",
      "Funds"
    ],
    "IdentifierType": "Ticker",
    "Identifier": "MSFT",
    "PreferredIdentifierType": "Ric"
  }
}

The response is:

  {
            "Identifier": "MSFT.MW",
            "IdentifierType": "Ric",
            "Source": "GSM",
            "Key": "VjF8MHgwMDAzZGQwMDEzNWZiNzI1fDB4MDAwM2RjMDAzNDdiYjgyOHxHU018RVFRVXxFUVRZfE9EU0h8RXx8TVNGVC5NV3wxMTcw",
            "Description": "MICROSOFT ORD",
            "InstrumentType": "EquityQuote",
            "Status": "Valid"
        },
        {
            "Identifier": "MSFT.OQ",
            "IdentifierType": "Ric",
            "Source": "NSM",
            "Key": "VjF8MHgwMDAzZGQwMDEzNWZiNzI1fDB4MDAwM2RjMDAzOGRlMmIxMnxOU018RVFRVXxFUVRZfE9EU0h8RXx8TVNGVC5PUXwxMzAz",
            "Description": "MICROSOFT ORD",
            "InstrumentType": "EquityQuote",
            "Status": "Valid"
        },
...

Please share your code for search.

I got the same result as yours. It returned "Not found".

{
    "@odata.context": "https://hosted.datascopeapi.reuters.com/RestApi/v1/$metadata#Collection(ThomsonReuters.Dss.Api.Extractions.ExtractionRequests.ExtractionRow)",
    "value": [
        {
            "IdentifierType": "Ticker",
            "Identifier": "MSFT",
            "Error": "Not found"
        }
    ]
}

Please directly contact DSS support team via Contact Us to verify the problem.

You may use search to find RICs for MSFT and then use those RICs with TermsAndConditionsExtractionRequest.

Thanks for your reply @jiraponse.phuriphanvchai. With large dynamic lists of securities it would be great to avoid search. I understand tickers are used differently based on exchange and asset type. It would be great to extract based on a combination of exchange, type and ticker. I'll reach out to support.

I tried search and no luck. "The identifier Type TICKER is not supported..."
