How can I use eikonapir (or any other way) to retrieve data from eikon/refinitiv from my RStudio session that runs on a Unix server?
Any help is appreciated
To use Eikon Data API (eikonapir), you need to have Eikon running on the machine.
Eikon Data API retrieves data through Eikon running on the same machine. As I know, Eikon doesn't support Unix operating systems. It supports Windows and macOS.
Thank you @Jirapongse
Your answer seems to confirm what I had thought and was afraid of.
Do you know if either of the other APIs you reference support connecting from a Unix OS? I heard/read that one can connect from Python running on my Unix box, but I am not sure if that is correct either or does one again need to have Eikon running on the same machine.
