Hi I am using the python function get_symbology and attempting to map a list of SEDOLs to RICs. However, it appears that ETF RICs have not been mapped to their composite RIC to facilitate a best_match. By contrast, attempting to map a SEDOL to a ticker, CUSIP, ISIN, etc. for the same instruments results in a successful best_match. I've tested this for roughly 500 US & CA ETFs and found this to be true in all cases.
The following SEDOL should have a best_match of "SPY", but does not return a value:
eikon.get_smbology(["2840215"], from_symbol_type="SEDOL", to_symbol_type="RIC", bestMatch=True)
Other mappings are successful:
eikon.get_smbology(["2840215"], from_symbol_type="SEDOL", to_symbol_type="ticker", bestMatch=True)
