get_symbology can not find consolidated ric

I can not find correct consolidated ric for some tickers through get_symbology()
for example,

1. consolidated ric for ASM should be ASM

2. consolidated ric for MCFT should be MCFT.O

3. etc

But they are not part of the returned results of get_symbology().

Please help

Hi @hui.chen

Doing a few tests using get_symbology(), I was also unable to determine the RIC, i.e.

Using the RDP Library for Python, I was able to convert. However, the symbology API did not convert ASM to the consolidated based on the ticker. But if I treat 'ASM' as a RIC, it outputs as a RIC but interprets the input as a different company - as displayed by the DocumentTitle.

I would recommend you reach out to the Refinitiv Helpdesk. They may pull in a Content Specialist to provide an explanation.
