You can subscribe and get data from RRT Optimized using websockets and Python. There is no released RESTful endpoint in Refinitiv Data Platform which provides this information.

How does this work exactly?

Do you have more detail?

Thanks

If you have credentials to the Refinitiv Real Time Optimized in cloud, then use the Service Discovery example from github or better follow the quickstart guide here. Use additional command line argument:

--ric "RUB/BKGDINFO"

to get data for your instrument.
