Reference data API

Reference data API


New public reference data API: With the new API we merge available product information in to one single machine readable source. No more downloading, polling and parsing of files should be necessary.
The new API offers information about Products, Contracts, TES configuration, Trading hours and Expirations.
We provide a cutting edge API based on GraphQL and JSON, which gives us flexibility and a shorter time to market.

The team about the new API

Interview with Viktor Uvarov, Eurex Market Functionality, Thomas Fischbach and Reda Jazouli, Deutsche Börse AD Interface Design on the recently launched reference data API. Read about the main drivers behind the development of the new API and its benefits. We also explain how easy it can be used. 

Example how to connect

The The data is hosted in the Amazon cloud. We use GraphQL for the data requests and the output format is JSON (JavaScript Object Notation).

One easy way to access the API is the Chrome browser. The webstore for apps offers a GraphQL Playground extension. 

After the installation the browser bar shows the GraphQL icon, where the user can access the GraphQL playground. There are four areas of interest:

  • Address bar for the API address
  • GraphQL query entry area
  • Headers area to enter the key
  • Data output area
