Getting Error "Invalid API credentials" while querying for historical data

Unable to get historical data from my kite connect account error shown
Invalid API credentials
please help

    Historical data api is not a part of base package, it's an add-on. Do you have historical data subscription?

    Dear Sujith
    Thanks for replying, I have't subscribed to the package as I could not find anything regarding historical add-ins on create application page in the developer portal,
    I only require current day interday data, websocket api only provides current tick without any timestamp,
    is there any api to get just minute wise interday data without using historical api
  • sujith
    Hi @SubhadeepDas,
    I am afraid there is no other api. You can get it only using historical data.

    Hi @SubhadeepDas,
    It is mentioned in pricing section. checkout

    @sujith So I have to pay 4000 even if I just want to have access to Candles API? This was not the case when you first started, is not it? I have purchased an APP today (which mentioned 'Full fledged trading API') and I am only seeing ADDON option while editing the newly created APP data.

    I am actually not ready to place/modify orders etc... I only needed historical API access. I have purchased the APP assuming historical will be included in 'Full fledged trading API'). What should I do now?

    @sujith @Kailash @vivek I missed adding you folks to the message. Can you please care to comment to my above query? Also what will I get back if I cancel my subscription today (I purchased the APP today too)?

    @fury1984 Since the Candles API has no execution functionality, we don't provide access to it as a standalone API. The Kite Connect APIs are intended to be an execution suite and not a data vending service, so providing access to the Candles API without Connect doesn't make sense.

    @fury1984 Also, with regard to your query regarding app cancellation, unfortunately, once an app is created, 2000 credits are immediately consumed and you may run the app for a month. Cancellation would lead to a loss of the consumed credits.
