Options market depth

Hello, I'm trying to download some market depth data using TH market depth report template. It works fine for stocks and futures but for options I get the following message when trying to preview:

row suppressed for lack of 'Distribution Rights - Tick History never allowed for PE 0' permission.

does that mean that I'm not permissioned to see this data ?

Thanks

@ayoub.serroukheidrissi,

Your assumption is correct, that message means there is a permissioning issue. It is actually not related to your own accounts permission, it is that for the specific options you chose we are not allowed to distribute market depth data.

Is there a general rule or a list as to what you can distribute and what you cannot in relation to market depth?

@ayoub.serroukheidrissi,

For high level information on data availability by asset class or for market depth, you can refer to the Tick History coverage guide.

For field level availability by asset class, see the Data Dictionary, tab Field Descriptions, starting in columns O.

Looks like Eurex options are supposed to be covered according to the market depth tab in the coverage guide. But thanks for your time anyway
