EikonError: Error code 503 | Server Error: API Proxy is not available

Hello,

I am currently receiving this error when I try to run my Eikon API today.

EikonError: Error code 503 | Server Error: API Proxy is not available 


I have already read some previous responses over this issue, however, it did not help me as it seems that similar issues had not been resolved yet to other users.


I also have run this code:


  1. import eikon as ek
  2. import logging
  3. logger = logging.getLogger('pyeikon')
  4. logger.setLevel(5)
  5. ek.set_app_key(YOUR_APP_KEY)


and this is the output:


<Logger pyeikon (TRACE)>

Hi @Javier Alonso.Madrigal Vargas

You should contact your local IT support team to sort out the connection issue.

This has nothing to do with the API and cannot be fixed from the API.

Hello, I seem to be facing the same issue for the past month suddenly when trying to use ek.get_news_headlines(). I really hope someone can help us with our issue soon, been trying to resolve it for weeks now!

Hello! On Friday after having checked step by step the troubleshooting presentation (and made no changes in my computer), all the codes ran showing this error but at leat everything worked:

However, it is not working today.

Are you on VPN connection?

I saw in another post that if you are on company VPN, the connection got blocked.

Yes, I do. I'm on VPN connection. What would you suggest in this case? Somedays the API works and some others not. Thanks!

Can you try to use the API when you are not on VPN connection?

I've tried it out without VPN, not working either. I am currently not in the same country as my office location. In fact I am in a different region. Could this be a possible issue?

Unfortunately, that is not an option for me as I'm working from home.
