I use the code below to get some data. with entity.name I do get the company name, however, the entity.ticker does not return value. Would anyone please point me to the right direction? Thank you

entity.tickeris not available on the
/factendpoint (see XBRL API Documentation).
You might be able to return this detail if you use
/fact/search?– note: this might ‘nest’ the results in Google Sheets and make that approach impractical. In that case, consider including
report.idas one of the fields in your initial query, then set up a second query to return
