not existing symbol for "EUR=" when using symbology api .net

When I try to use symbology api like the following:

service = DataServices.Instance.ReferenceData;

service.ServiceInformationChanged += OnServiceInformationChanged;

service.RequestSymbols("EUR=", SymbolType.Ric, SymbolType.Cusip, OnSymbolsRicResponse);


i get a "non existent ric" response message while i can subscribe to "eur=" data stream so meaning that the ric is valid.

is that correct? actually i was attempting to use that as an alternative way to test ric existence with respect to subcribe the datastream, but it looks like it is not a good way .

Hi @alessandro.bardine

Yes, it is correct.

I tested the API and received "Unknown symbol" from Symbology API call.

Hi @alessandro.bardine


This is now possible in discovery/symbology/v1 using a query like this:

{

"from": [

{

"identifierTypes": [

"RIC"

],

"values": [

"EUR="

]

}

],

"to": [

{

"identifierTypes": [

"PermID"

]

}

],

"type": "strict"

}


If the RIC is not valid you will get an error: "message": "Input values do not exist"
