Problem Verifying Eikon API App Key

I'm currently stuck at the very first hurdle trying to get the Refinitiv Eikon API working with Python.

My code:

import eikon as ek # the Eikon Python wrapper package

import numpy as np # NumPy

import pandas as pd # pandas

import configparser as cp

print(ek.__version__)

ek.set_app_key('my app key here')


The response from this I get is:

AttributeError                            Traceback (most recent call last)

Eikon = 1.1.14

Anyio = 3.4.0


If someone could offer some help I'd be very grateful, thanks

Hi @oliverbbeaumont

I removed your appkey from the above error output as it is your private credential.

However, I did try to use the above appkey with Eikon inside JupyterLabs and it is working fine on my PC.

Can you try the following:

import anyio
anyio.Lock()

Also, check the ~\Miniconda3\envs\refinitiv\lib\site-packages folder to confirm the version

There are also some existing threads related to this issue with further diagnostics / suggestions:

Error: module 'anyio' has no attribute 'Lock' - Forum | Refinitiv Developer Community

Error: AttributeError Traceback (most recent call last) - Forum | Refinitiv Developer Community

AttributeError: module 'anyio' has no attribute 'Lock' - Forum | Refinitiv Developer Community

One of the suggestions is to downgrade anyio to v3.2.1 which solved the issue for more than one user.
