eikon.set_app_key('***********')

[MainThread 20028] Error: no proxy address identified.

eikon.get_timeseries()

eikon.get_data()

Hello @marilive612 ,

Double-check that you are running your python code on the same physical machine where your Eikon/Workspace is running. Eikon proxy is part of your desktop.

See Eikon Data API Quick Start guide for Windows on how to create your valid API Key.

If the issue persists, review article Eikon Data API(Python) Troubleshooting | Refinitiv for the steps to troubleshoot.

Hope that this information is of help
