Data Change Notification – Change to API for GDPR Compliance 21 Mar 2018 05:00 CDT

This notification outlines GDPR compliance related changes that can be expected in the PermID.org API: 

Open PermID - Change Notification - Change to API for GDPR Compliance

PermID.org currently contains Date of Birth information. Thomson Reuters considers this information to be strictly confidential and, as such will be increasing the security level of this content and encrypting this attribute as part of GDPR requirements (https://www.eugdpr.org/).  As a result of this, and in order to continue to provide relevant and GDPR compliant content, PermID.org is migrating to a new Year of Birth field and this will result in some changes to the PermID.org API.

New Elektron Test Data Available 18 Dec 2017 05:33 CST

We are now providing Elektron Realtime data for you to test our Elektron APIs without the need to access infrastructure. This is done by using a data replay tool to easily playback a pre-recorded capture of real-time markets - allowing you to interact with the API in a psuedo-live environment. We also have an article explaining how these tools are used. 

The Elektron test data provided on this page may be used in conjunction with a data replay tool to quickly run up and try the APIs within the Elektron SDK.

The data replay tool, called sink_driven_src, is part of a package of tools called "infra tools" which may be downloaded from the developer portal here. The packaged recorded data files below include a readme with step-by-step instructions detailing how the test data may be played back with sink_driven_src such that it behaves like a data feed. You may then configure and connect the example consumer applications within the Elektron SDK to sink_driven_src and consume the pre-recorded data. Whilst a data replay tool cannot fully simulate the functionality of a real data feed product, the capability provided here will enable you get started on your journey to learn the Elektron APIs.

To learn more about our Elektron consolidated data feed, please take a look at the information here and follow the links for further details.

To learn more about the tools used to record and play back the data, please see the article Quick start guide to recording and playback of Elektron Data
