Historical Instument token

So I want to get historical 1 minute data. I hope this is possible.

Now if I want to get Nifty Dec Futures 2016 what should be the instrument token? From where should I get this token? Accordingly I want all the instrument token for other futures/options list

    You should get all instruments for an exchange or whole instrument dump(CSV) and search for instrument token in that.Checkout KiteConnect client on GitHub or documentation for more information.

    http://api.kite.trade/instruments gives a dump csv .But it gives all the latest token available/trading .I donot get 1 year old or 8-10 month old instument token

    @gully As of now, we don't provide data for expired contracts. This is because the exchange re-uses tokens. The data team is working on a way to make this available, but this will take some time.

    @Nikhil.A thanks for clarifying..one basic question wrt to historical data API. What exactly historical data does the API provide then? By historical do you mean then the latest active instruments only?

    Hi @gully,

    We don't have data for expired contracts only.
    We do have intraday data for equity and 6 to 8 months. We have days data upto 2007.

    Hi Sujith,

    is the support being built now ?

    Hi @uday548,
    It is not possible to implement it right now. This will be done in future.

    Is the historical instrument available now? how I get historical options data?
  • sujith
    We only provide day candle data for expired futures instruments.
