Envoy Node.js SDK

The SDK exports several classes and functions, however the most typical way to integrate the SDK is as middleware. The middleware() function call returns a middleware that attaches an instance of EnvoyPluginSDK to the req object and verifies that the request came from Envoy. It is available as req.envoy.


npm install --save @envoy/envoy-integrations-sdk

Environment Variables

The SDK relies on a few environment variables:

  • ENVOY_CLIENT_ID - can be found in the Integration Builder
  • ENVOY_CLIENT_SECRET - can be found in the Integration Builder
  • ENVOY_BASE_URL - (optional in production) the URL to Envoy's API
  • JWT_SECRET - (optional) used if encoding/decoding JWTs

Locally, these environment variables can be set using a .env file.

Getting Started

View our Node.js quickstart guide.


Here's the typical SDK usage at a glance.

const express = require('express');
const { middleware, errorMiddleware, asyncHandler } = require('@envoy/envoy-integrations-sdk');

const app = express();
 * "middleware()" returns an instance of bodyParser.json,
 * that also verifies the Envoy signature in addition to
 * parsing the request body as JSON.

app.post('/url-to-a-route-or-worker', asyncHandler(async (req, res) => {

  * @type EnvoyPluginSDK
  const { envoy } = req;  // "envoy" is the SDK
  const {
    meta, // the platform event request_meta object
    payload, // the platform event request_body object
    userAPI, // user-scoped API calls, used in routes
    pluginAPI, // plugin-scoped API calls, for plugin services
    installStorage, // install-scoped storage
    globalStorage, // global-scoped storage
    job, // update the job (if in a worker)
    jwt, // helper to encode/decode jwts
  } = envoy;

  * User API usage
  const visitorTypes = await userAPI.flows(locationId);

  * Storage usage
  * The below can be used both at the install level or global level
  await installStorage.set('foo', 'bar'); // sets foo=bar in storage for this install
  const { value } = await installStorage.setUnique('foo'); // creates and returns a unique text value for foo
  const { value } = await installStorage.setUniqueNum('foo'); // creates and returns a unique number for foo
  const { value } = await installStorage.get('foo'); // also gets the current value of foo
  await installStorage.unset('foo'); // deletes foo
  * You can also send multiple commands at once,
  * to be executed in the same transaction.
  * The response will be an array of the results of each command, in order.
  const results = await installStorage.pipeline().set('foo1', 'bar').unset('foo2').get('foo3').execute();

  * Job updates
  * Note that job.complete can take any number of attachments after the first argument.
  await job.complete('Credentials provisioned.', { label: 'password', value: 'password' });
  await job.ignore('No credentials provisioned.', 'Email was not supplied.');
  await job.fail('Could not provision credentials.', 'Server could not be reached.');
  * You can also just attach things without completing the job.
  * Attach more things by providing more arguments.
  await job.attach({ type: 'text', label: 'foo', value: 'bar' });
  * If the job is some multi-step process,
  * you can update it's message without changing the status.
  * You can also optionally attach things by providing more arguments.
  await job.update('Still working...');

  * JWT usage
  const token = await jwt.encode(visitorId, '30m');
  const { sub: visitorId } = await jwt.decode(token);

  * If in a validation URL:
  res.send({ foo: 'bar' }); // will save foo in the installation config.
  // or
  res.sendFailed('This step has failed validation.'); // prevent the installer from progressing.

  * If in an options URL:
  res.send([ { label: 'Foo', value: 1 }, { label: 'Bar', value: 2 } ]); // display these options in the dropdown.

  * If in a worker:
  res.send({ hello: 'world' }); // the job was a success, and here's some data about it.
  // or
  res.sendOngoing({ hello: 'world' }); // the job is still ongoing, but here's some data about it.
  // or
  res.sendIgnored("We're not gonna do this one, sorry.", { hello: 'world' }); // doesnt meet the requirements to continue.
  // or
  res.sendFailed('We tried, but failed.', { hello: 'world' }); // we cant continue with this job.
