Would Eikon API allow to download a universe of 80,000 companies with all historical ratings all at once

Query raised by an internal client on behalf of external client

A client has questions about our EIKON API, https://developers.refinitiv.com/eikon-apis/eikon-data-api/quick-start.
Would it allow to download our complete universe of 80,000 companies with all their historical ratings in one script?
If not what other Refinitiv solution would be able to run this?

Hi @Reginald.Flores

It is not possible to retrieve a large amount of data at once.

You can refer to the API limitation document at https://developers.refinitiv.com/eikon-apis/eikon-data-api/docs?content=49692&type=documentation_item

It is suggested to split the request into multiple smaller requests and does not exceed the limitation.
