I an experienced user of the bloomberg API in excel in a windows environment (work).
Lately i decided to experiment using the rapidminer bloomberg api ("bloomberg historical extract") under the "finance and economics" extension.
i seem to specify the widget as required, yet when running it i get a "an active bloomberg terminal connection is required".
I am logged in my bloomberg account from home through a citrix (as necessary when accessing bloomberg via a mac).
Everything seems to be seamless, except rapidminer does not seem to be able to detect it.
Has anyone accessed the bloomberg api from a mac in rapidminer?
if yes, could you pls share how you did it?
