@scpanchal

We have APIs that can convert ticker to RICs. Therefore, please let me know the Refintiv's products or APIs that you are using. It shouldn't be Eikon Data APIs because Eikon Data APIs are in Python.

Otherwise, you can directly contact the content support team via my.refinitiv.com for rules used to construct option chains.
