Connect to Eikon Data API without being logged in to reuters

Hi,

Is it possible for me to connect and run queries using the python data API without being logged into reuters?

Is the application id sufficient for authentication?


I have a few automated scripts that use the reuters API and would like the scripts to run even if I got logged out of reuters due to inactivity.


Regards,
Moataz

No. As Python API sends all request to Eikon Desktop, you have to be logged.

>Is the application id sufficient for authentication?
The application ID identifies the application consumer (and not the user), it's a second level of authentication.
