Hello! I am trying to set up an RDP session as indicated here:
rdp.open_platform_session( '8e9bxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx1b035d', rdp.GrantPassword( 'my_login', 'my_password' ) )
Using the app key generated for EDP API (from App Key Generator on the terminal) and typical login/password credentials I am using for Eikon, but get a Logging error.
Message: ElektronError(-1, 'TypeError("Expected object of type bytes or bytearray, got: <class \'str\'>")') Arguments: ('EDP Authentication failed',)
Could you help me please, what I am doing wrong?
Are you unable to get any headlines, regardless of the query?
I tried to recreate your scenario and whilst I can get headlines from a Platform session, I cannot get any from a Desktop session either.
I have already emailed the product owner to report this - as you are aware the Refinitiv Data Platform library is in Beta.
Hi @alex.yermolayev, Your Eikon credentials cannot be used with RDP platform session. Please use a desktop session for that.
Eikon has to be running on the local machine. The generated APP KEY should have Eikon scope selected.
