Quick start: Bloomberg Integration

You can quickly start using the OpenFin Bloomberg Integration by installing it as a Node.js package and importing it into your application code.

System requirements

  • Windows 7 or 10+
  • Node.js and npm
  • Application registration with Bloomberg: The Bloomberg Terminal Connect API requires that your application's origin is registered with Bloomberg. The origin must include a fully-qualified domain name, and cannot include localhost. To register your application's origin, contact the Bloomberg App Portal team, either via live help in the Terminal application or by submitting a ticket in the Bloomberg Customer Service Center.
  • Using the API requires that a logged-in Bloomberg Terminal is running on the user's system.


Add the package as a dependency for your application:
npm install @openfin/bloomberg


Import functions and types that you need into your application code.

import { connect, connectInterApplicationBus } from '@openfin/bloomberg';
