Hi @Safa, Please see this previous answer regarding getting intraday currency data. The REST API help is available in the DSS web portal at https://hosted.datascope.reuters.com/DataScope/

You can use the credentials for the web portal with the REST API as well.

The DSS website uses https and hence you may need a certificate in your client application. It will depend on the programming language/module used. For most clients, it is handled automatically by the underlying language. You can see DSS examples in the .NET/Java/Python in the downloads tab.

There is no downtime for the REST API. Calls can be invoked any time of the day.
