Thanks in advance for the answers.

I got the same error when using an invalid credential.

get_data : Exception Occured
(<class 'Exception'>, Exception('Invalid credentials were supplied. This part of the Datastream service requires a child ID (beginning with Z) or a Datastream Professional ID.'), <traceback object at 0x000001B582F3AC48>)
None
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "c:\python37\lib\site-packages\DatastreamDSWS\DS_Response.py", line 156, in get_data
    raise Exception(self.tokenResp['Message'])
Exception: Invalid credentials were supplied. This part of the Datastream service requires a child ID (beginning with Z) or a Datastream Professional ID.

You can test your credential by directly using the Datastream REST API website at http://product.datastream.com/DswsClient/Docs/TestRestV1.aspx.

If you get the same error, you need to contact the Datastream support team via MyRefinitiv to verify the credential.
