How are the following tables defined in the DSS API?

Hello,

There are 3 database tables we are currently pulling from the Eikon Desktop app that we need a DSS API equivalent for to download reference data:

1. Organizations - fields: name, sector, symbol, incorporation, domicile


2. Securities - fields: currency, coupon_rate, maturity_date, current_amount_outstanding, commission_percent, callable, coupon_frequency


3. Security issues - fields: amount, issue_date, issue_yield, instrument_type, seniority, capital_tier, convertible

Is it possible to retrieve these data points from the DSS API? I haven't been able to find anything in the DSS documentation or API Reference Tree so far that mentions these fields.

Thanks,
Daniel

Hi @daniel.cheley,

Application normally extracts data from DSS by specifying Report Template and Content Field Names. You can find the list of available field names and report templates in the DataScope Select Content Guide document. Fundamental data generally is provided in "Terms and Conditions" report template.

In case that you cannot a field which provides the data you're looking for, please contact DataScope Select Content support by submitting a new query via MyRefinitiv.
