How to get ISIN codes from Chain RIC

We try to get ISIN codes from ChainRIC in Python.

When we run following code but returned error.

Does Python support get data by ChainRIC ?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

data,err = ek.get_data('0#GBBMK','TR.ISIN')
data.head()

The correct RIC could be 0#GBBMK= and I got the same result as yours.

To get ISIN for RICs in that chain, I use the below code.

data,err = ek.get_data('0#GBBMK=',['DSPLY_NAME'])
ricList = data['Instrument'].tolist()
isin = ek.get_symbology(ricList, from_symbol_type="RIC", to_symbol_type="ISIN", bestMatch=True)
isin

First, I use get_data to retrieve a list of RICs in that chain and then use get_symbology to convert RICs to ISINs. The output is:
