At the moment I am trying to set up the Python API for TR Eikon. When I follow the manual provided by TR (https://developers.thomsonreuters.com/tr-eikon-scripting-apis/python-tr-eikon-scripting-library-eap/quick-start) I constantly receive the error message "http or parsing error" after hitting the "Generate a new Application ID"-button.
As I am far from being a coding/computing professional my first intuition was to contact the TR support. The telephone support (surprisingly) told me to post my question in this forum instead. Any help is highly appreciated.
Thank you in advance and best regards!
At the moment there's no validation of app IDs for this API. You can use any non empty string in set_app_id method. We will soon (in a few weeks) start validating the app keys. At that point only the app keys generated using a new app key generator, which should be published next week, will be considered valid. So, there's no advantage in generating an app key using existing app key generator today. For now just use any non empty string. And then replace it with the app ID generated using the new app key generator once it is published.
I am a firefox user and its Devtools equivalent showed the following error message (unfortunalety I was not able to switch the message reporting to english language so far and thus hope the german report can be understood and a potential solution lateron translated for other interested forum users):
(Check the appendix version for better readability.)
Eikon however states in the System Test that Internet Explorer is the used browser ("Browser Version: Internet Explorer 11"). Does that matter?
As a check I just now also installed the newest version of Chrome, set it as the standard browser and tried the Eikon Application Generator again, without success. The Chrome Devtools only contains the following entries:
I once again hope my limited coding knowledge is excused! Thank you in advance!
