Hi @ufficio

Thanks for the clarification - you asked about Eikon API limits in your 1st post.

If you are connecting using a desktop session to Eikon or Workspace via RD Library - the same limit as Eikon API applies - as the RD Library is mimicking the Eikon API and still sourcing its data from Eikon.

Hi @ufficio

The Eikon Data API limits can be found on the Eikon Data API Documentation page

Documentation | Refinitiv Developers

There are various limits such Requests per second, Response volumes and Datapoints e.g.:

  • get_timeseries: The current limit value (10-Oct-2019) is 3,000 data points (rows) for interday intervals and 50,000 data points for intraday intervals. This limit applies to the whole request, whatever the number of the requested instruments.

and so on...
