TRTH: RIC details for Options, Futures and Equities

In the TRTH DSS GUI, I can prefer a instrument search (say options/futures), and it is able to provide necessary details like: Exchange, Call/Put, Expiry Date for the given RIC.

In the TRTH API, there is an api called: https://hosted.datascopeapi.reuters.com/RestApi/v1/Search/FuturesAndOptionsSearch

This API allows you to search FutureAndOptions, but the data returned are of type ValidatedInstruments, and it does not contain the necessary information I wanted. (but the CommoditySearch does). Is there an API to return the following information for future/options:

type: FUTURE/OPTION
RIC root (underlying) code
currency_code
exchange_code
call/put

?

@sheldon.rong,

The search calls do not all return the same set of data fields, and none of the API search calls will return the fields you are looking for.

To find which API calls deliver specific fields, you can use the Data Dictionary. In tab "Field Descriptions", filter the "Field Name"column to find what you are searching.

To retrieve the data you are interested in, you could use a "Terms and Conditions" API request with the following field list:

"Asset Type", "RIC Root", "Currency Code", "Exchange Code", "Put Call Flag"

Hope this helps.
