Use data/symbology/beta1/convert operation in .NET RDP Library

I've got a .NET envirnomment and I pull ESG Data with the .NET RDP Library. Additionally I'd like to pull data as in the data/symbology/beta1/convert API for which I'm licensed and I'm able to use on the API playground. But I cannot find this method in the .NET RDP library. Do I need another library for this method?

Hi @Adrian Marti

The Delivery layer of the RDP.NET library should allow you to use any of the RDP APIs.

Certainly, there is a Symbology Lookup example for RDP.NET on the following GitHub page:

Example.RDPLibrary.DotNet/src/3. Delivery/3.2-Endpoint/3.2.03-Endpoint-Symbology at master · Refinitiv-API-Samples/Example.RDPLibrary.DotNet (github.com)

The above example uses the newer https://api.refinitiv.com/discovery/symbology/v1/lookup API to convert various symbology types e.g. RIC to ISIN

To clarify my first point above regards the Delivery layer and using it to access the various RDP APIs. If you know the RDP APIs endpoint (URL) and the format of the request message, you can create an Enpoint object, specify the URL and the JSON format request parameters before calling Endpoint.SendRequest().

You should then receive the response which you can decode based on the specific APIs documentation.

I describe the above Endpoint technique briefly with a couple of example API scenarios in my RDP Library Article. The code is in Python, but the technique remains the same
