To get data from Python API, can I use the Refinitiv Workspace Web version? In other words, can I create the App Key from the Refinitiv Workspace Web and use it as an interface to Eikon Data API Python library?
thanks in advance.
Yes, you can generate an appkey from workspace web. Type in APPKEY in the searchbar and when select Eikon Data API checkbox for generating an AppKey.
To get data, you will have to use either Eikon or Refinitiv Workspace. Web version cannot be used in the python API.
There is however an application called CodeBook available, which is also accessible from Workspace Web. It is a Jupyter hosted environment in the cloud which can allow you to build program using Python. Type on CODEBOOK to launch it.
NB: Codebook uses its own appkey - DEFAULT_CODE_BOOK_APP_KEY
