Looking to get subjects and sentiment for a news article using Eikon python api

It is straightforward to obtain news headlines, but I'm having trouble obtaining anything but the story HTML using get_news_story.

How can we get the RIC codes (and confidences) associated with that news story. Also I'd like to get the relevance, sentiment, novelty and volume for a given storyID

I'm using this API https://docs-developers.thomsonreuters.com/1547561596860/14684/book/en/index.html
But I'm open to creating my own JSON query if it will get me the data that I need.

@lansey headlines and story text are the only two options that are currently available, unfortunately. I will refer this to the product manager.

Thanks for the quick response @Zehya Kovalyov. Is there any way to programmatically access this data outside of the Eikon desktop application?

For example maybe using this App Studio:

Or this Elektron api?

Thanks!

If you have access to Elektron datafeed, you can retrieve this data using Websocket, Elektron Message or legacy RFA APIs. Here are a couple of links you can check out. You may also want to discuss Machine Readable News proposition with your Refinitiv account manager.
