Duplicate bonds in results when searching by issuer/entity orgid

Hi,


I'm finding I get duplicate bonds for an issuer/entity when using InstrumentSearch from the REST API. For example, if I search with orgid = 115689364

var resultingInstruments =

_searchContext.InstrumentSearch(

AllInstrumentSearchRequest.Create(

new DssCollection<InstrumentTypeGroup>() { InstrumentTypeGroup.GovCorp },

IdentifierType.OrgId,

"115689364",

IdentifierType.Ric));


I get back several bonds, but some appear to be duplicates on slightly different Ric's, for example:

ZATH14A7=J

ZATH14A7VT=J

I would like to choose only one of these, but I'm not sure how to differentiate them? If I do a composite and T&C lookup they seem to be on the the same exchange and other Composite and T&C fields seem to also have the same values.

Can someone please explain how I can eliminate one of them, or what Composite and T&C fields I should look at for this?


Thanks,

Lindsay

Just forgot to mention that there is a pattern in that when there are duplicates of the bond the one will always have a Ric code ending in =J and the duplicate will end in VT=J. Another example:

ZATRA4A3=J

ZATRA4A3VT=J

Hello @lcrawford,

I do not believe that what you see is duplicates, to my best understanding ( I am a developer, rather then a content expert) different RICs, even if they differ slightly, represent different instruments, so the search is not, in this case, returning duplicates.

However, to help you identify the correct instruments within the result, per your requirements, I would suggest, as a customer to directly open a content support case via Refinitiv Helpdesk Online -> Content -> DSS, and be connected with a Refinitiv content expert.

There may also be a more appropriate search type to use per your requirement from among the available searches, rather then InstrumentSearch, perhaps GovCorpSearch, and content experts will be able to help you to identify the optimal search.

Hi, yes, I've looked at GovCorpSearch but it does not take orgId's and therefore we can't use it to expand the entities into the bonds they've issued.

Thanks, I've now logged a support ticket at my.refinitiv.
