How to request an API key

Hello,


I am trying to connect Python (on my laptop) to Eikon (on my school server) using vpn.

When I asked if it is possible to my local Refinitiv representative, he told me that he could approve it from his end if I had an API key.

Would anyone be able to help me with how and where I can request an API key?

Thank you so much in advance.


Best,

Samuel.

To use Eikon Data APIs, your code must be running on the same machine where Eikon desktop application is running. I don't see how you could use Eikon Data APIs in the scenario you describe: your code running on your laptop and Eikon running on a remote machine at your school.
To generate the app key required for Eikon Data APIs, see instructions in the Quick Start guide for Eikon Data APIs on this portal.
