Failed to get access token 400

Hello,

I am trying to connect to the Refinitiv platform and receive volatility data, but I always get the same error "Failed to get access token 400".

I'm having the same error trying the example of the "Quickstart guide for Refinitive Data Platform"

I have verified that the user, password and application ID are correct.

Can you help me?

Thanks you.

Hi @axel.zamorano.empresa_externa

The final log file shows you connecting successfully - but your account licence is not entitled to the timeseries data - so this is something separate that the account team will need to remedy

Hi @axel.zamorano.empresa_externa

Do you have a valid MachineID i.e. programmatic Username (which you would have received in a Welcome email) and did you set the password using the link in the email?

Note the above email does not make it obvious that you need to register on MyRefinitiv before activating your MachineID password - so please ensure you are also registered on the MyRefinitiv site - using your corporate email.

Also, did you generate an AppKey (ClientID) using the AppKey Generator (top left hand corner) at https://api.refinitiv.com/ ?

When you Create your AppKey ensure you tick the EDP API checkbox

Once you have set all the above values and entered into the QuickStart example, please try running again and report back.

If you have already done the above, please attach the fuller console output as a txt file here - removing any token values / credentials etc from the output.

Hi @axel.zamorano.empresa_externa

This does appear to be a firewall / port type issue. I have asked Odon to refer this to our RDP Platform team - who can hopefully assist your internal IT/Security team to resolve the issue
