Hi @ravi_ranjan

I think it is not feasible on Eikon Data API(Python).

First, bond search is not available on Eikon Data API(Python)

Second, to work around that, you have to import search result into a "list" and as you have seen that it only support 500 RIC at a time.

Third, even you manage to get all the RIC code for 974750 instruments, you will have to manage to break it down to a lot of smaller requests and you will hit API usage limitation in no time.

Limitation document is at https://developers.refinitiv.com/eikon-apis/eikon-data-api/docs?content=49692&type=documentation_item


I saw that you have access to DSS/Tick History API (saw you asked questions about it)

I think it is possible to explore on how to extract RIC and information for the same universe using DSS product.

Hello,

Could you explain how to extract this information on RIC with only the search criteria that I have ?


Thanks



Hi @ravi_ranjan

Do you mean using DSS/TRTH API ?

If so, please post your question on the DSS or TRTH Forum.
