Can't find permid by RIC in Record Matching API and Entity Search API

Sometimes both Record Matching API and Entity Search API return no matches when searching by RIC (or by ticker + MIC), while the PermID with the corresponding data exists on on the website. For example:

https://permid.org/1-4295884627

However, API request returns 0 matches:

https://api-eit.refinitiv.com/permid/search?q=ric%3ARANS.AS&entityType=quote

Interesting, the entry is however present in the bulk file (OpenPermID-bulk-quote-20200913_085205.ttl):

<https://permid.org/1-55838220374>
        a                         tr-fin:Quote ;
        tr-common:hasName         "RANDSTAD ORD"^^xsd:string ;
        tr-common:hasPermId       "55838220374"^^xsd:string ;
        tr-fin:hasExchangeCode    "AEX"^^xsd:string ;
        tr-fin:hasExchangeTicker  "RAND"^^xsd:string ;
        tr-fin:hasMic             "XAMS"^^xsd:string ;
        tr-fin:hasRic             "RAND.AS"^^xsd:string ;
        tr-fin:isQuoteOf          <https://permid.org/1-8590925871> ;
        tr-fin:isQuotedIn         <https://permid.org/1-500111> .

Same issue with SAND.ST for example

Hello @simon.keel,

I believe what you are running into is that more data is available for human eye access on permid.org website then via programmatic, API access. This difference has to do with different licensing for different kinds of access and is better explained in PermId FAQ, in section "How is data open?".

I hope this info helps
