Low Latency API C#

Morning,


Could you tell me what API I can use for low latency access to live economic releases and where I don't need to have my reuters open. I am developing in C#.

Hi @gordon.konheiser

In order to consume data from Eikon, the Eikon application has to be running.

I have emailed your Refinitiv Account representative to contact you to discuss possible alternative products/sources of the data you are interested in.

Hi @gordon.konheiser

The ECI indicator does not update frequently.

If you have access to ERT in Cloud, you can use Elektron WebSocket API.

Here is the tutorial.

Here is the sample code in C#


You can still follow the same process to get each country's Economic Indicator RICs.

@gordon.konheiser

You can try Datastream Web Service. The Datastream Web Service (DSWS) API provides access to Datastream content based on SOAP/XML, REST/JSON & .NET.

Datastream is the world’s leading time series database, enabling strategists, economists and research communities’ access to the most comprehensive financial information available.

Hi @gordon.konheiser

Sorry for the inconvenience, but we upgraded our Developer Portal recently and therefore the link from the 7th Sept post is outdated.

The new link for the tutorials is Websocket API tutorials

and the new link for the article is Retrieve Cross Economic Data using Eikon Data API

Hi, Just to confirm:


The username and password I use to connect to the API are my Reuters credentials ?

The API is completely independent of my Reuters terminal/app and I dont need to be logged in ?

thx

Hi @gordon.konheiser

Please confirm which example you are running and where you are trying to connect to.

Assuming you have a Refinitiv Data Platform account, you should have received a Welcome to Refinitiv - Your New Account type email, which contains a Machine ID as well as links to setting your password and checking you have a valid My.Refinitiv account.

The My.Refinitiv account is a user account (for admin/support purposes) whilst the Machine ID is required to connect and consume data programmatically from the ERT in Cloud / Refinitiv Data Platform.

And yes - assuming you have a MachineID you can use that to consume data from the cloud without having to have your Eikon desktop application running. Note that a MachineID can be licenced for different types of data - so it would have to have realtime data licence in order to consume the Economic indicator data my colleague referred to above.

The easiest way to confirm you have the correct credentials etc is work through the QuickStart for ERT in Cloud and confirm you can connect

Hi,


I am using the CSharpEdpGwExamples_VS150 example.

When I go to the quickstart link you shared, its asks me to sign in , even though I already am, and then when I sign in the page reloads and it still says sign in ?

Hi @gordon.konheiser

Apologies regarding the link but we are having some teething issues with our new portal.

In terms of the two examples that form part of the CSharpEdpGwExamples, can you confirm if you have tried the MarketPriceEdpGwServiceDiscoveryExample example and if so what values you for -user parameter?

And for -clientID can you confirm if the AppKey you generated using the AppKeyGenerator had the EDP API box ticked?

And finally the password should be long one you created via the link in the Welcome email that contained the MachineId.

You can select the Viewable moderators' option when replying if required.

Hi, I have one of your guys confirming I have the correct access. I will wait for them to come back to me and then try again.


In terms of the api key I need the EDP API ?


When will the link be up again to the quick start ?


Thanks

Hi @gordon.konheiser

In order to use the Websocket API to connect to the Platform (as opposed to Eikon) then you need to have the EDP API selected for your AppKey.

I have asked the Portal Support team to look into your Quick Start access issue - it appears to be a permission issue - as the page is available and accessible by others - sorry.
