Hi Refinitiv Support,
I would like to be able to get individual Rics from chain RIC and also be able to get instrument description from a RIC.
The question is which API should I use?
Does the DataScope select API or other REST API supports this or is there a web UI I can use? Please advise.
Please advise what Refintiv services/products you already have access to if any.
Also, when you say instrument description - is the content of the DSPLY_NAME field sufficient or do you require something more verbose perhaps?
The answers to the above will help guide your possible choices
Apologies but some of the forum emails were being marked as spam by my Outlook and I just saw your follow up question.
Yes, you can use EMA APIs to consume Chains and their constituents.

Whilst it is Java-based, the techniques described will work just as well with EMA C++
