Good morning all,
When we found out about the rebranding and planned retirement projects we reached out to our account representative to see whether it would be affecting us. They confirmed that there was no action required for our particular usage but with the deadline approaching I thought I'd reach out to the community to confirm.
We make use of an old version of RFA (7.4.1). It is implemented in a light weight java app that was developed around 7 years ago. This app simply consumes the data feed (forex rates) and passes it on to our main application for processing. The app connects directly to the Refinitiv server through a VPN.
I would appreciate it if anyone could confirm that there is no action required from our side or let us know what changes will be required.
Thank you very much.

A few things to consider:
Are you using the RFA Java Value Add layer? e.g.
If so, you would need to change the imports to rebranded version e.g.
Customers have until the end of July 2021 to switch over to rebranded versions.
Customer can continue to use the older version. However, Refinitiv will support ONLY E loads (emergency/blockers) in the transition period.
After July 2021
