OpenFIGI API is a channel that links the financial transaction identifiers of third-party providers to the Financial Instrument Global Identifier (FIGI). FIGI aids open data identification of the trading transactions involving financial instruments that represent different classes of assets. Provided by Bloomberg on behalf of the Object Management Group, the FIGI features fixed identifiers that facilitate operational efficiencies to the spectrum of stakeholders that constitute the financial markets value chain. The OpenFIGI API conveys HTTP requests and returns responses in JSON format. It exists as a fully-supported release that comes with publicly accessible documentation.
The following is a list of historical changes that were made to this asset. Typically, once an API is published on ProgrammableWeb.com, the data we keep about that asset gets updated over the course of its life. For example, the endpoint or home page of the documentation might change. As a means of enforcing the integrity of our data, every time a non-trivial change is made to the data we keep about an asset, we require the entry of some changelog text before that change can be saved. This way, we have a great audit trail of all activity surrounding the asset. For each asset, the changelogs begins with the moment an asset is approved for publication on ProgrammableWeb. If you spot an error in our data and believe that a record needs to be updated in some way, the ProgrammableWeb team would very much like to hear from you at email@example.com
