How to Fetch option Chain in WebSocket ! HERE IS THE ANSWER

import asyncio
import json
import ssl
import upstox_client
import websockets
from google.protobuf.json_format import MessageToDict
import requests
import pandas as pd
import MarketDataFeed_pb2 as pb
access_token =‘YOUR ACCESS_TOKEN’

Define a list to store received data

received_data =

def get_market_data_feed_authorize(api_version, configuration):
“”“Get authorization for market data feed.”“”
api_instance = upstox_client.WebsocketApi(
api_response = api_instance.get_market_data_feed_authorize(api_version)
return api_response

def decode_protobuf(buffer):
“”“Decode protobuf message.”“”
feed_response = pb.FeedResponse()
return feed_response

async def fetch_market_data():
“”“Fetch market data using WebSocket and print it.”“”

# Create default SSL context
ssl_context = ssl.create_default_context()
ssl_context.check_hostname = False
ssl_context.verify_mode = ssl.CERT_NONE

# Configure OAuth2 access token for authorization
configuration = upstox_client.Configuration()
configuration.access_token = access_token

# Get market data feed authorization
response = get_market_data_feed_authorize(
    api_version='2.0', configuration=configuration)

async with websockets.connect(, ssl=ssl_context) as websocket:
    print('Connection established')

    await asyncio.sleep(0)  # Wait for 1 second

    # Fetch live option chain data using the API
    url = ""
    headers = {
        'Content-Type': 'application/json',
        'Accept': 'application/json',
        'Authorization': f'Bearer {access_token}',  # Replace with your access token
    params = {
        'instrument_key': 'NSE_INDEX|Nifty Bank',
        'expiry_date': '2024-02-29'  # Replace with the desired expiry date
    response = requests.get(url, headers=headers, params=params)
    if response.status_code == 200:
        data = json.loads(response.text)
        option_chain = data['data']
        # Extract instrument keys from the option chain data
        instrument_keys = [option['call_options']['instrument_key'] for option in option_chain]
        instrument_keys += [option['put_options']['instrument_key'] for option in option_chain]

        # Subscribe to instrument keys in the WebSocket feed
        for instrument_key in instrument_keys:
            data = {
                "guid": "someguid",
                "method": "sub",
                "data": {
                    "mode": "full",
                    "instrumentKeys": [instrument_key]
            binary_data = json.dumps(data).encode('utf-8')
            await websocket.send(binary_data)

        print('Subscription request sent')  # Add this line

        # Continuously receive and process data from WebSocket
        while True:
            message = await websocket.recv()
            decoded_data = decode_protobuf(message)
            data_dict = MessageToDict(decoded_data)
            print(json.dumps(data_dict, indent=4))  # Print received data

        print("Failed to fetch option chain data. Status code:", response.status_code)

Run the fetch_market_data function in an asyncio event loop

@Davinci_Code, thank you for your contributions to the Upstox community. Your support helps in the community’s growth.

Hii @Davinci_Code

Can you also post about how to do authentication and get access token for the API to run ? I didn’t understand why a redirect uri is required to fetch the access token.

The Upstox API adheres to the OAuth specification, necessitating the provision of a one-time authorization code on the redirected URL following a successful login. This authorization code is solely for single-use to acquire the access token.

For further information, please consult the authentication documentation at Authentication | Upstox Developer API.
