Entity List defined by PermIDs is not possible?

We use PermID.org to resolve Organisation Entity names to a PermID. With the resulting list of PermIDs we need to query DSS for some additional information relating to each Entity.

It appears that DSS does not support import of an Entity List where the identifier is a PermID.

Using the DSS GUI it is possible to enter a permID or name that Search will then find and convert to an ORG identifier OrgID.


Is it correct that import of an Entity List defined by PermIDs is not possible?

It sure seems like it, but why since PermID is a key part of Refinitiv's universe and ours!

Hi @osiig,

You can add PermIDs to an Entity List using the EntityListAppendIdentifiers endpoint. Below is the sample of request.

POST https://hosted.datascopeapi.reuters.com/RestApi/v1/Extractions/EntityLists({id})/ThomsonReuters.Dss.Api.Extractions.EntityListAppendIdentifiers
{
    "Identifiers": [
        {
            "Identifier": "4295904307",
            "IdentifierType": "Pid"
        }
    ],
    "KeepDuplicates": false,
    "IncludeParentAndUltimateParent": false
}
