How to Upload Market Data via API
Market data is relatively easy to get into Molecule. Some of our customers upload market data via API.
You'll need the following:
- A Molecule username/password with permission to upload market data.
- A curves_upload_template.xlsx file filled out with the market data you intend to upload. You can get a sample in the Molecule app, at Market Data/Curves/Download/Curves Template, or by clicking here.
- cURL (or a similar tool) installed on your machine.
A simple cURL command gets things done. Here's an example:
curl 'https://app.molecule.io/curve_upload_records.json' -v -XPOST -F curve_upload_record\[data_file\]=@/path-to-your-file/curves_upload_template.xlsx -u username:password
Just substitute the following fields:
