Hi @debashish.bisoi

The example you are trying to run is connecting to the Refinitiv Data Platform to request Time Series data.

To connect to the Refinitiv Data Platform you need the appropriate account type - your Eikon userID may not be permissioned for this access.

Have you spoken to your Refinitiv Account team regards accessing the Refinitiv Data Platform? Have they granted you the relevant access? You would have received an email similar to the one below with a MachineID and link to set your password etc:

If you want to use your Eikon Account to get data from Eikon using an API, then I recommend you refer to the Eikon Data API documentation and quickstart. You will also find a tutorial section which covers Timeseries here

Hi @debashish.bisoi,

Can you double-check the MachineID (username) and password you are passing is also correct?

I had a previous incident where the developer missed out one of the digits from their MachineID (username) and the error they got back was : {"error":"invalid_client" ,"error_description":"clientId field is invalid." }

Hi Umer

I did try it twice

1. Using EIKON user id and password

2. Using developers site user id and password

Still it keeps failing with the same error
