Will the Refinitiv Data Platform (RDP) Library for python support data contribution in the future?

As RDP is still under development it would be nice to know if/when RDP for python will support data contribution in the future?

Hi @Sabina Tanase

We are hoping to add support for TREP On Stream / Off Stream contributions sometime in 2021 - but no specific time in 2021 as there is other higher priority functionality on the list of deliverables.

Hey

Perfect answer, that is exactly the answer we were looking for. Thank you very much for the very prompt answers.

We can close this question now :)

Have a great weekend,

Sabina.

Hi @Sabina Tanase,

What kind of contribution functionality are you looking for - through Refinitiv Contributions Channel? If so, that would be outside the scope of RDP library which is primarily oriented towards a desktop or platform sessions. You can however contribute to RCC using the websocket API, and it is supported with Python samples.

Please see this article to learn more about it. Even though the article talks about contribution through in-house market data system, this websocket API has been expanded, to be able to contribute to RCC directly over the internet.

Hey

We would like to contribute to an Non-Interactive Provider on our TREP installation, so basically just another ADH in our TREP.

We have been exploring the possibilities within the WebSocket API before we actually found out the Python RDP Library, so we know it's possible through the WebSocket API. We just wanted to know whether Refinitiv's Python RDP Library could also provide the same functionality or whether it is a planned activity for the nearby future... So basically, whether the RDP python library could provide a function like contribute() which does a Post of a json to the web_socket_app :-)

Thank you in advance,

Sabina.
