[User Discussion] - Market scanner

For those of us that use Interactive Brokers is it possible to implement their market scanner directly into SC? https://interactivebrokers.github.io/tws-api/market_scanners.html#scanner_examples

If we could do this we wouldn't need to scan the entire market via SC alerts and it would save us major bandwidth/data costs. If we could add these to our daily watchlist then we've got a way to do intraday trading based on IB's scans.

This is on my list of to-do's as well. Currently I have a script for IB's Python API which writes results of a scanner to a .symbolList file, then I just figured to periodically-load that (e.g. every 5 min) in an Associated Watch List window, set symbols to charts, and go from there.
I presume there's a more-seamless way to do it i.e. pipe in through an ACSIL script, but whatever satisfices.

Interesting idea, it works but isn't as elegant as it could be. Is this work SC could do for a future release? or would we need to get custom programming help to integrate this? (question for SC Engineering) thanks

Just noticed that IB has a REST API now, so JSON encoding - here's their reference for getting a list of symbols in a market scanner: https://www.interactivebrokers.com/api/doc.html#tag/Scanner/paths/~1iserver~1scanner~1run/post

Perhaps this would be easy enough to call from a C++ routine?
