I have generated App key for Eikon API and want to use it with Python but when I run the set app key command in Jupyter notebook, it gives me the error as shown in the attachment.

@saad.ali

I assumed that you are using the httpx version 0.20.0.

I got the same error when using the Eikon Data API with the httpx 0.20.0.

Please downgrade the version of the httpx to 0.19.0

 pip install httpx==0.19.0

You can verify the httpx version by using the following command.

C:\>pip show httpx
Name: httpx
Version: 0.19.0
Summary: The next generation HTTP client.

@Jirapongse thanks, the downgrading did work!

Hello @saad.ali

Did you run the Eikon/Workspace application? Please be informed that The Eikon/Workspace application integrates a Data API proxy that acts as an interface between the Eikon Data API Python library and the Eikon Data Platform. For this reason, the Eikon/Workspace application must be running when you use the Eikon Data API Python library.

If the Eikon/Workspace application is already running, I suggest you try the steps on this Eikon Data API(Python) Troubleshooting article.
