Instrument keys to get F&O candle data

Can anyone please help to know what is the instrument key if I want to fetch Future and Option data.

Example: Nifty 22 Feb 22350 Call

What instrument key I need to pass to get candle data for above?

You can access the newly launched JSON instruments file at Instruments | Upstox Developer API.

Get the object and then instrument_key by using the trading_symbol, which follows the format: <underlying_symbol> <strike_price> <CE/PE> <expiry in dd MMM yy>

Hey Pradeep,

Is my understanding as below correct ?
Required instrument key for Nifty 50 F&O for price 22350 Call
Instrument key will be : Nifty 22350 CE 22 FEB 24

If this is wrong then please provide example instrument key for the same.
Thank you!

Hey Pradeep,

Any update for above?

@Sai_Pawar ,

Did you even had a look at instrument master file?

Yes, I have reviewed it. It seemed quite extensive at first, but I now understand it better after examining the example you provided. Thank you very much!

that’s good @Sai_Pawar .

Almost always, “we” are not paying attention. I myself face this many a times - but practicing it now.
This activity of paying attention also helps us become better traders and a good human being.
