How to find out when RIC codes will be changed or updated by using RFA C++?

Hi Fellow Devs,

I need to retrieve information regarding the stock code / RIC codes change for particular exchange. What is the equivalent "WORLD/CHANGE1 for Eikon" in RFA C++? Is there a method, request or field id that give this information when requested?


Thanks.

Hi @alexlau,

There shouldn't be an issue when you use "SG/CHANGE2". At a minimum, you should get a response with a status. For example, I tried this within the SpeedGuide tool and received this:

Hi @alexlau,

You can request "WORLD/CHANGE1" as the name of the item. This will bring back a page-based data represented as FIDs (315, 316, ...) (ROW80_1, ROW80_2, ...) of text containing the same details you see within Eikon. However, you will need to parse the page yourself to drill down into specifics. For example, changes in Austria will be based on the item code "AT/CHANGE1", which is embedded in FID 322 (ROW80_8).

Hi @alexlau,

In addition to this, you can also subscribe to RIC change notification service at my.refinitiv.com. This will allow a digest email of all the RIC changes happening to the venues of your interest.

Hi guys,

First of most, thanks for the answer, but I want to know is how to do it by using RFA C++ API for realtime feed. Is there any chain list request that will return the RIC Changes?


Thanks.

Hi @alexlau,

The suggestion to use "WORLD/CHANGE1" can be used with the RFA C++ API. If your question is whether there exists a chain for such information, I don't think so. That being said, I would recommend you reach out to the Refinitiv Helpdesk and ask if there is a real-time code/ric you can use to track these changes.

Hi @nick.zincone.1,

Thanks for the info, I've tried "SG/CHANGE2" before and it doesn't give any response. Well I guess will try and error for a while then will contact the refinitiv helpdesk as per your suggestion.


Cheers

Hi @nick.zincone.1,

Thanks again for the quick response and help, I'll try again in myside, maybe it's NOT properly log or processed.

Cheers

Hi @nick.zincone.1,

I did try again to request 'SG/CHANGE2' but can't get any response (use wireshark as well) from Refinitiv. I even try and error using different combination of "SI", "SG" or "SGX" with "CHANGE2".

May I know, this request is supported in which version of RFA C++ and it falls under which capability categories?

FYI, we're using RFA C++ version 6.5, or do you happen to have the changelog between 6.5 and 8.2 (latest)?

Based on the print screen you've provided, we noticed on 06 May 2021 there are 2 stocks (NOW type) that are updated, so we've printed out the message we received for those 2 stocks. The result being the new stock doesn't have any info of the old stocks.

e.g. SEVA.SI is updated to DIGI.SI

But in DIGI.SI messages, we cant find any "SEVA".

Best Regards,

Thanks.

Hi @alexlau,

Any version of the RFA API should not make a difference when requesting for data. The APIs are designed to be independent of the items you request. Also, did you try using the SpeedGuide tool? I would also download this as a simple test tool to ensure you get data back from your environment.

Hi @alexlau,

What I would suggest you do, is follow the tutorials within the dev community using the latest RFA API to ensure you can request for the “SG/CHANGE2” RIC. With this, you can confirm what returns and also compare what the difference is, if any, between what your application is doing vs the tutorial.
