IdentifierType to get a special asset type

Hi there,


I tried to call a DSS ExtractWithNotes API to get some Instrument details of ISIN SG1Z70955880. I used ISIN as IdentifierType. However it returned me with a MTLF asset type. I wanted to the EQTY asset type details.


Are they any other IdentifierType to call the specific asset type I want. Please take into consideration that I do no know the RIC, and the only information I am given is ISIN.

Hello @timothyley,

Please include the complete request that you run, as different request types accept different parameters, the complete spec can be reviewed on DSS API Reference Tree?

Hello @timothyley,

Would like to suggest to run InstrumentSearch on Equities, per your required Isin, first:

{
                {protocol}}{
                {host}}{
                {api}}Search/InstrumentSearch 
{
  "SearchRequest": {
        "InstrumentTypeGroups": [           
            "Equities"
        ],
        "IdentifierType": "Isin",
        "Identifier": "SG1Z70955880",
        "PreferredIdentifierType": "Ric"
    }
}

There are several results for this Isin, more then one.

Once you identify which instrument you require, you can request CompositeRequest on that RIc, next.

I am trying to call for a EQUITY asset type. However, it returned a MTLF.
