c:\data\RDP\dev\sampleCode\IPA\python\samples>python timeSeries.py

Getting OAuth access token...

Reading the token from: token.txt

Token expired, refreshing a new one...

Requesting from TOKEN_ENDPOINT: https://api.refinitiv.com/auth/oauth2/v1/token

Saving the new token

Invoking data request

Unable to get data. Code 403, Message: {"error":{"id":"518d753f-fefb-4b9a-b93d-352424c96c39","code":"insufficient_scope","message":"access denied. Scopes required to access the resource [trapi.data.historical-pricing.summaries.read]","status":"Forbidden"}}

Your curl request was incorrect. Use this:

curl -v -X POST -H "Accept: application/json" -d "username=*****&password=*******&client_id=*****&grant_type=password&scope=trapi&takeExclusiveSignOnControl=true" https://api.refinitiv.com/auth/oauth2/v1/token

Hi @Habib.Ahsan,

The error means, that you do not have permissions to run time series API call. Please contact your account manager to get this added. Alternatively, you can try an use the RDP services for which you do have permissions. See the scope parameter provided to you with the access token.

You can read about token scopes in the introductory tutorial Authorization - All about tokens.

Hi @Habib.Ahsan

If this is for yourself and not on behalf of a customer, then you can raise a 'Service Now' ticket for 'Internal Ordering Request for Eikon, Elektron' and ask them to add this scope/licence to your MachineID.

Thank you both @Umer.Nalla and @Gurpreet. I have opened an OMS request to fix the permission issues.

Another interesting thing that came up while running the code in introductory tutorial on ARM-CFS authentication, I cannot run the token request using the curl script , I get 404 Page Not Found error:



But I can get a a new token when I run the python script - see attached file . I don't understand why the same endpoint would return two different responses with same credentials. I'd appreciate any guidance.
