Is there possibility for account only for developer purposes to be created?

Hello, I want to ask a question. What is the possibility for developer work independantly without usage of the company account for developing Python Apps? Since the account in our company is being used by staff and I need to develop an app how this can be achieved? Is it necessary to purchase another account just for development needs or is there any other solution available. (The Eikon desktop app needs to be running for the Python script to work.)

Hi @kiril.georgiev.4

You are correct that when consuming data from Eikon, the script / code needs to run on the same PC - not just from a technical point of view - but from a Licensing viewpoint as well.

So, yes - each device that executes a Python script consuming data from Eikon requires an Eikon installation and licence.

I would recommend you discuss this with your Refinitv account team to see if there is some option for a developer licence?
