Problem with Expiration Date in API REST when querying for EndOfDay Instruments

I can't get the expiration date using C# API REST. Also, if I try to get it by using Postman, I have the same result, The ContentFieldName "Expiration Date" has null value

This is the request I used:


  "ExtractionRequest": {

    "@odata.type": "#DataScope.Select.Api.Extractions.ExtractionRequests.EndOfDayPricingExtractionRequest",

    "ContentFieldNames": [

      "Expiration Date",

      "Trade Date",

      "Settlement Price"


    "IdentifierList": {

      "@odata.type": "#DataScope.Select.Api.Extractions.ExtractionRequests.InstrumentIdentifierList",

      "InstrumentIdentifiers": [

        { "Identifier": "TFMBMc1", "IdentifierType": "Ric" }



    "Condition": null



And the Response:


    "@odata.context": "$metadata#DataScope.Select.Api.Extractions.ExtractionRequests.ExtractionResult",

    "Contents": [


            "IdentifierType": "Ric",

            "Identifier": "TFMBMc1",

            "Expiration Date": null,

            "Trade Date": "2022-05-19",

            "Settlement Price": 91.024

Hello @jmcalama01 ,

I reproduce the same result as you via Postman call- Expiration Date is not populated.

With DSS GUI I have requested the same instrument, and Expiration date is not populated, so the result is consistent.

So I conclude that Expiration Date information is not available for this instrument.

The following is strictly a guess, as I am a developer, not a content expert:

This instrument is a monthly future. If it expires always on some known date, for example, at the end of the same month that it is active on, or if there is some other known convention, such as "expires on the first Friday of the month", it will not need to have Expiration Date populated, from Trade Date we will be able to always figure out the Expiration Date per knowing this convention for this specific type of instrument.

To gain more insight into this content, I would suggest to open a content case with Refinitiv content experts directly, via Refinitiv Helpdesk Online -> Content -> DSS.

Let us know if you are unable to proceed- and we will give a hand.
