How do I request Entity data (having their OrgID) using the REST API

Using the DSS REST API C# examples and with your help, I have built and run successfully a series of bond ratings request (in VB.Net).

I now need to create a request for data about the issuers of these bonds, i.e. an entity request, and I don't quite know how to go about it, as my bond ratings request mention all sorts of bond related things such as RatingsExtractionRequest, RatingsCondtion, InstrumentIdentifierList, which are all not relevant for a entity base data request. Can you help me there with how such an entity request should look like?

I have the list of the OrgID's of interest, and a list of fields I'd like to retrieve for each of them. Is the "

LegalEntityDetailExtractionRequest" the right way to go about it ?

Thanks for your help.

Hi Bernard,

Correct, the Legal Entity Detail is the correct 'template'/request for getting this data and OrgID is a valid Entity-relevent Identifier to pull the data via this request.

Best regards,

Gareth

You may find the Example Application useful for example C# / HTTP code:

https://hosted.datascopeapi.reuters.com/RestApi.Help/Home/Index (DSS Credential required to access)

I think the sample that would be of relevence is under "On Demand Extractions" > "Create: Detail (Entity Data)"

An SDK is also available via this location as well as other DSS API resources.

In case you are not familiar with it, the Example Application and its usage are described in the DSS Quick Start.

Hi Chritiaan

I have got as far as requesting the entity data, but then I get the error "No permission for template LegalEntityDetailReportTemplate." :(

Can you please give me permission on that template so that I can continue testing the entity data retrieval ? Thanks !!!
