Eikon get_data() doesnt retrieve timeseries with dates parameters

Eikon API - Python.

I'm trying to get the timeseries of a paid index, (.JGEMBLA) but It only gets the last value of the field.

Hi @rcid,

The Eikon Data API presently provides the get_data() and get_timeseries() calls which as far as I'm aware unfortunately does not provide historical data that maps to the RHistory function. See this related post for an explanation and possible suggestions.

Hi @rcid,

Looking within the DIB (Data Item Browser), I don't see any historical data offered for the Beta Value.

To view the available historical values offered for an instrument, you can narrow down the filter within the DIB:

You may also want to confirm with the Refinitiv Helpdesk and ask whether this data is available for this or any other historical data points you may need.

Thanks for your answer Nick.

Yes, through DIB it seems there are no time series variables available. But I could get some of the data through Rhistory function in Excel. My goal is to replicate this thhorugh Python's API. Any Idea?

this is the function:

=RHistory(".JGEMBLA","NDA_RAW.Nda_date;"&"NDA_RAW.Nda_avg_yield_to_mat_put;"&"NDA_RAW.Nda_one_day_percentage;"&"NDA_RAW.Nda_total_return;"&"NDA_RAW.Nda_weighted_average_price;"&"NDA_RAW.Nda_yield;","START:01-Apr-2020 END:20-Apr-2020 INTERVAL:1D",,"CH:Fd",)


this is my output:
