Datastream token seems to be rejected

I’m able to log in to Datastream Web Service successfully, but I am not able to retrieve any data. My Token seems to be rejected. Why is my Token not accepted ?

Please check two things:

  • Make sure that a Token has not been expired when being sent to the Datastream Web Service (DSWS) endpoint to retrieve data. A Token expires 24 hours after being issued.

  • If HTTP GET method is used, special characters like “+”, “=”, “/”, “&”, etc. included in a Token needs to be URL encoded to HEX codes such as “%2B”, “%3D”, etc.

@Rupert Schilling Tokens have a life of 24 hours, so you may need to request a new one

Ah, ok, thank you
