Is there a programatic way to get a RIC for a given ticker?

If I know a ticker, for example, IBM, is there a way to translate this to a RIC via a webservice call? I see there are facilities to convert to open permID, but there seems to be no way to map together RICs and Open PermID with Tickers. Again , looking to convert Tickers to RICs.

thanks

I can use the following python code to get RICs from a ticker.

def main():
    if len(sys.argv) < 2:
        print ('Please enter unique access key as 1st command line parameter')
        sys.exit(1)
    url = 'https://api.thomsonreuters.com/permid/search?q=ticker:IBM'
    access_token = sys.argv[1]
    headers = {'X-AG-Access-Token' : access_token}
    try:
        print ('connecting to %s' % url)
        response = requests.get(url, headers=headers)
    except Exception  as e:
        print ('Error in connect ' , e)
        return
    print ('Status code: %s' % response.status_code)
    if response.status_code == 200:
        print ('Results received: %s' % response.text)


if __name__ == "__main__":
   main() 

It uses Entity Search API. This script requires Token as a parameter.
