@Sreedhar.Kankanala

In order to retrieve data from EMA Java API, you need to know RICs. Therefore, to obtain option chain RICs, you need to contact the content support team via my.refinitiv.com for RICs or rules used to construct option chains.

After getting RICs, you can use them with EMA Java API.

Thanks @jirapongse.phuriphanvichai and @Wasin Waeosri for your reply. In case of chains do we need to first get the chain constituents and then call TREP interface again to get the market price for each constituent again?

Hi @Sreedhar.Kankanala

After you make the first subscription to retrieve chain constituents.

Then I suggest you read this article to make a Batch/View subscription with the list of RIC you have.
