How get the data from ERT in Cloud using Websocket API in R

Recently I got trial to Elektron feed. In the welcome email was said that "You need to use the Websocket API not the REST API as you will be receiving the data from our streaming feed.". The link that was suggested to help was following: https://developers.refinitiv.com/en/api-catalog/elektron/refinitiv-websocket-api/quick-start

To get the data, I have all of the following:1)Machine ID, 2)Client_ID credential and 3) Password

I am interested in historical data for ticker ENOAFBLMc1. The data should not be "closing", so I need BID and ASK, VOLUME (and possibly CLOSE, HIGH, LOW). Could you help how retrieve the data in real-time service.

Hello @Kerry

We do not have the WebSocket API - ERT in Cloud connection with R example yet, but you can find the R examples for deployed real-time connection in WebSocket API GitHub page.

Regarding the Authentication REST API with RDP part, you may refer to the RDP R example in this Refinitiv Data Platform Historical R Example GitHub page.

Hope these help.

Thank you, @wasin.waeosri In the link you sent regarding REST API, it is said that "

  • client_id: A unique ID defined for an application making the request. Users can generate/manage their application ID's here

"

However, when press to set this app ID, I have empty website . How can I get this app ID for the REST API

Hello @Kerry

Did you set the "App Display Name", select the API and click "Register New App" button yet?

@Kerry

Elektron Real-Time feed does not provide historical data. It only provides streaming current market data. If you're looking for timeseries of historical data you need a different product, e.g. Tick History for intraday timeseries or Datascope Select for end of day timeseries.
