Good morning,

There was a bug in our system that was allowing these to be pulled without the appropriate permissions. But, it should be the same for tick and daily, we will look into that. But going forward, just contact our sales/service team and they can help add the CBOE indicies to your account or you can add them via the website (link below) and then things should work as expected.
