Datastream provides access to nearly 16 million economic series. With coverage of this extent, it can be difficult to prioritise which region, country, sector or industry to analyse and investigate. With this in mind, clients that access the full Datatstream Web Service can now poll for the latest changes and corrections to any of the economic series.

Clients are able to create up to 50 filters, each containing up to 100K economic series – linked to license.

Filters can be private or shared via the same parent ID.

Full details of how to use the API to create and manage the filters are available on MyRefinitiv and the Refinitiv Developer Community. You can use the test page to create your own filters using SOAP, JSON, or plain XML.

Note: To create custom filters, you need to be specifically permissioned to do so. Please contact your LSEG representative for details.
