How to get historical data through websocket api

Hi,

I know there are a couple of questions related to this but all are posted at least half years ago. With little hope, is the websocket api support historical data now (FX fixings in my case)? If not, how can I get it through python (I don't have enough knowledge to access the data through c++/java), thanks!

Hello @lzhuang1

Elektron Websocket API is realtime API, only realtime data.

However, Tick History product offers REST service and REST API access, including, but not limited to, through Python.

To learn more about Tick History product and the best approach for you organization, would be good to contact your Refinitiv account team.

In addition, to get an introductory view of what TRTH access via Python code will look like, you may take a look at TRTH - Programming Without SDK Tutorial
