All SOAP API calls go over HTTPS. Firstly, identify the path and file name. Second, you may use either CURL or WGET to retrieve the file. Remember to apply your Tick History credentials in the url otherwise the file may arrive empty.

Here is the syntax to use:

wget “https://tickhistory.thomsonreuters.com/HttpPull/Download?user=<user>&pass=<pass>&file=<file>

Quick Start package - C# at https://developers.thomsonreuters.com/thomson-reuters-tick-history-trth/thomson-reuters-tick-history-trth/downloads contains the FTPExample program which demonstrates the use of the SubmitFTPRequest method.

It lifts the restriction of a single instrument and a single day per request that we have seen in the previous SubmitRequest example. That restriction is there to prevent the web service response becoming too large. By contrast, using SubmitFTPRequest the results are placed on an FTP server and we can request up to 30,000 instruments with unlimited date range (as long as the gzipped result does not exceed 15 GB).

Hi team,

This is for V1. we can directly use wget and curl to download.

What about V2? do we have FTP location for V2 to download extracted files?

Hello @satish.shioshankar.gaidhane,

According to this "Can we request using sftp file request and get response back using sftp call? (from Webinar May 31)" question, it seems like TRTH V2 doesn't deliver data via FTP.

@Nipat- Thanks. I read this.but it was about to request and response. My question is can we download files already extracted in FTP location using schedules using curl/wget ?
