Field for accessing intraday bond yields

I'm trying to pull intraday yields on 10-year German and Japanese bonds using the REST API, but I'm not certain what field(s) to submit. I'm using RICs DE10YT=RRPS and JP10YT=RRPS. I believe the yield numbers should be available because they appear on the GUI (image below), but Close Ask Yld and Close Bid Yld don't appear to work as fields for intraday requests.

Hello @christine.i.black,

Two ways to examine the list of available fields per request type:

We can request the list of all available fields for the specific type of request ( for example, TickHistoryTimeAndSales), using GetValidContentFieldTypes request:

{ {protocol}}{ {host}}{ {api}}Extractions/GetValidContentFieldTypes(ReportTemplateType=ThomsonReuters.Dss.Api.Extractions.ReportTemplates.ReportTemplateTypes'TickHistoryTimeAndSales')

You can learn more of this request in one Refinitiv Tick History (RTH) - REST API Tutorials,

for example REST API Tutorial 4: On Demand tick data extraction -> Section "Get available field list for tick data - HTTP request".

The tutorial goes over tool called Postman and includes a download link to a Postman request collection that allows to easily test and tune your request.

Once you have had a chance to examine all fields for your target request type, there appears to be several different yield fields available

You can request the ones selected.

The other way is to examine Tick History Data Coverage Guide data_coverage_guide.xls, tab Field Descriptions, and select based on this info.
