RIC found on Eikon but not from the datascope API

We have some RIC that we can see in Eikon app (for instance USDRWFFIX), but not available through the api:

{
  "ExtractionRequest": {
    "@odata.type": "#ThomsonReuters.Dss.Api.Extractions.ExtractionRequests.IntradayPricingExtractionRequest",
    "ContentFieldNames": [
      "RIC",
      "Bid Price",
      "Last Update Time",
      "Instrument Snap Time",
      "Security Description"
    ],
    "IdentifierList": {
      "@odata.type": "#ThomsonReuters.Dss.Api.Extractions.ExtractionRequests.InstrumentIdentifierList",
      "InstrumentIdentifiers": [
        {
          "Identifier": "USDRWFFIX",
          "IdentifierType": "Ric"
        }
      ]
    }
  }
}

Would there be any Ric that are not available through API ?

@pierre.vigier,

The RIC likely cannot be validated on DSS. To retrieve data, you need to add the AllowOpenAccessInstruments in the instrument validation options. Below is the sample.

{
  "ExtractionRequest": {
    "@odata.type": "#ThomsonReuters.Dss.Api.Extractions.ExtractionRequests.IntradayPricingExtractionRequest",
    "ContentFieldNames": [
      "RIC",
      "Bid Price",
      "Last Update Time",
      "Instrument Snap Time",
      "Security Description"
    ],
    "IdentifierList": {
      "@odata.type": "#ThomsonReuters.Dss.Api.Extractions.ExtractionRequests.InstrumentIdentifierList",
      "InstrumentIdentifiers": [
        {
          "Identifier": "USDRWFFIX=",
          "IdentifierType": "Ric"
        }
      ],
       "ValidationOptions": {
            "AllowOpenAccessInstruments": true
       },
       "UseUserPreferencesForValidationOptions": false
    }
  }
}

Below is the information about the Allow Open Access Instruments option in the DSS GUI User Guide.

Hi @pierre.vigier,

I have tried to search the RIC name on Eikon and get the RIC name with '=' suffix ("USDRWFFIX=") instead. The USDRWFFIX= is available on DSS as well. Could you try the RIC?

I get the same response, but indeed, the Ric should be "USDRWFFIX="

{
    "@odata.context": "https://hosted.datascopeapi.reuters.com/RestApi/v1/$metadata#Collection(ThomsonReuters.Dss.Api.Extractions.ExtractionRequests.ExtractionRow)",
    "value": [
        {
            "IdentifierType": "Ric",
            "Identifier": "USDRWFFIX=",
            "Error": "Not found"
        }
    ]
}
