oauth2 CLIENT_ID

I am having difficulty for oauth2 CLIENT_ID.

1. the quick start https://developers.thomsonreuters.com/elektron-data-platform/elektron-data-platform-early-access-apis/quick-start says CLIENT_ID can be generated as API key by myself

2. the user guide https://developers.thomsonreuters.com/elektron-data-platform/elektron-data-platform-early-access-apis/docs?content=42293&type=documentation_item says CLIENT_ID will be provided to me by ThomsonReuters

3. I tried to generated one myself following the quick start but it did not work

can someone clarify?

Hi @yuan.shen

I have tried your credentials, and can see that your ID is only authorized for Research Alerts. If you are using the python samples, you can see that the OAuth token is only scoped for:

trapi.alerts.research.crudtrapi.auth.cloud-credentialstrapi.cfs.claimcheck.readtrapi.data.research.readtrapi.data.symbology.readtrapi.metadata.readtrapi.search.lookup.readtrapi.search.metadata.readtrapi.search.read

which is related for Research dataset. In the python samples, you can try researchAlerts.py to get the content.

python researchAlerts.py -s

If you need access to other content set like historical timeseries or News, please contact your Account Manager.

Hi @yuan.shen, I was able to generate a CLIENT_ID (AppKey) as outlined in the quick start guide at https://developers.thomsonreuters.com/elektron-data-platform/elektron-data-platform-early-access-apis/quick-start, and successfully use the quickstart and news alerts sample with it.

Did you select the Option: EDP API to include the EDP scope for your generated client id?
