Way to access IFR New Issue Monitor through Eikon Data API?

I'm trying to programmatically access and get lists of new issuances daily using the Eikon data API with python, but I am not sure if this is possible yet or what type of instrument it would be. Thank you.

Take a look at the tutorial titled "News API - New issues in the news".

Thanks for pointing me here. Trying to use the same string as in the tutorial in get_news_headlines

Product:IFREM AND Topic:ISU AND Topic:EUB AND (\"PRICED\" OR \"DEAL\")

gives me the following error:

Error code 500 | Backend error. Failed to deserialize backend response. Expected valid JSON. Error: invalid character 'i' looking for beginning of value.

But just "Product:IFREM" returns articles for me.

Has the query format changed since or is there just an issue? Using Eikon Data API proxy on Mac.

--UPDATE

Removing quotes gives results:

q = "Product:IFREM AND Topic:ISU AND PRICED OR DEAL"

To see how you can deal with quotes in the news query take a look at the answer on this thread.
