I got a questions from client which is relate to multiple applications to use different generate keys to run into the same PC by using Eikon Data API. Does it workn under Eikon desktop? if so, is it any impact or drawbacks?
To add to the response by @raksina.samasiri, Eikon API Proxy currently supports up to 10 multiple client sessions. In other words you can have up to 10 applications running simultaneously and retrieving data using Eikon Data APIs.
It is not necessary to use a separate app key for each application. You may use the same app key across all your applications or you could create a separate key for each app, whatever is more convenient for you. E.g. in case you'd like to run several instances of the same application at the same time, it would likely be more convenient to use the same app key and there's absolutely no need to use a separate app key for each instance of the same application.
Also please note that the limit will be counted across all client applications connected to the same Eikon instance as mentioned in
