Elektron Authentication

I'm trying to use the WebSocket API...

According to the documentation we should POST to: https://api.refinitiv.com/oauth2/beta1/token

With username/password/appid.

I'm getting a 404 not found... Is this URL still the right one?

@james.noble

You should use /auth/oauth2/v1 instead.

For more information, please refer to https://apidocs.refinitiv.com/Apps/ApiDocs.

Hello @james.noble

According to Quick Start - Connecting to Elektron Real Time in Cloud page, the url is https://api.refinitiv.com:443/auth/oauth2/beta1/token not https://api.refinitiv.com/oauth2/beta1/token. You can download Python example and follow the instruction of the page to get data from Elektron Real Time in Cloud using WebSocket API application.

Hope this help.

Thanks, that Postman screenshot really helped. Working now.

I'm trying to find all the data items available with the API in the ApiDocs, but can't see it... Is it listed somewhere else?

Do you mean RICs? If yes, you can use the RIC Search tool to find RICs.

So lets take IBM, how do I see what IBM info is available. Can I get historical prices going back to a certain date as well as live pricing? What about reference data for an ETF, is that available? I can't see this documented anywhere... Cheers!

@james.noble

I assume that you are using Refinitiv Data Platform. You can see a list of services here. More services will be added on a regular basis. You can see the full list via the apidocs.

For historical prices, you can use /data/historical-pricing/v1/. As I know, currently reference data is still not available in Refinitiv Data Platform.
