Create a streaming session

  • Available in Sandbox
  • Available in Production
  • Available to Advisors
  • Supported

Create a streaming session for use with the Tradier Streaming API. This session can be used with the streaming endpoints to obtain updates to the market as they happen.

Note: Once a sessionid is received, it will be valid for 5 minutes, during which time you can initiate a stream. After the session expires and you’ll need to create a new session in order to stream data.

Note that it is not permitted to open more than one session at a time.

This session can also be used with the WebSocket streaming APIs.
Some HTTP clients require to manually set the Content-length: 0 header in cases where the POST request doesn't include a body.
POST

Headers

Header Required Values/Example Default
Accept Optional application/xml, application/json application/xml
Authorization Required Bearer {token}

Code Example

If you're developing in the sandbox, change the hostname to https://sandbox.tradier.com

     -H 'Authorization: Bearer <TOKEN>' \
     -H 'Accept: application/json'
