journy.io

journy.io Node.js SDK

npm npm downloads

This is the official Node.js SDK for journy.io.

💾 Installation

You can use your package manager (npm or yarn) to install the SDK:

npm install --save @journyio/sdk

or

yarn add @journyio/sdk

🔌 Getting started

Import

To start, first import the client.

import { Client } from "@journyio/sdk";

Configuration

To be able to use the journy.io SDK you need to generate an API key. If you don't have one you can create one in journy.io.

If you don't have an account yet, you can create one in journy.io or request a demo first.

Go to your settings, under the Connections-tab, to create and edit API keys. Make sure to give the correct permissions to the API Key.

const client = Client.withDefaults("your-api-key");

If you want to use a custom HttpClient:

const http = new OwnHttpClientImplementation();
const client = new Client(http, { apiKey: "your-api-key" });

Methods

Get API key details

const result = await client.getApiKeyDetails();

if (result.success) {
  console.log(result.data.permissions); // string[]
  console.log(result.callsRemaining); // number
}

Create or update user

💡 A user ID should be a robust, static, unique identifier that you recognize a user by in your own systems. Because these IDs are consistent across a customer’s lifetime, you should include a user ID in identify calls as often as you can. Ideally, the user ID should be a database ID.

💡 journy.io does not recommend using simple email addresses or usernames as user ID, as these can change over time. journy.io recommends that you use static IDs instead, so the IDs never change. When you use a static ID, you can still recognize the user in your analytics tools, even if the user changes their email address.

💡 The properties full_name, first_name, last_name, phone and registered_at will be used for creating contacts in destinations like Intercom, HubSpot, Salesforce, ...

await client.upsertUser({
  // Must provide either an email or userId or both
  userId: "userId", // Unique identifier for the user in your database
  email: "john@doe.tld",

  // optional
  properties: {
    full_name: "John Doe",
    first_name: "John",
    last_name: "Doe",
    phone: "123",
    registered_at: new Date(/* ... */),
    is_admin: true,
    array_of_values: ["value1", "value2"],
    key_with_empty_value: "",
    this_property_will_be_deleted: null,
  },
});

Delete user

await client.deleteUser({
  // Must provide either an email or userId or both
  userId: "userId", // Unique identifier for the user in your database
  email: "john@doe.tld",
});

Create or update account

💡 An account ID should be a robust, static, unique identifier that you recognize an account by in your own systems. Ideally, the account ID should be a database ID.

💡 The properties name, mrr, plan and registered_at will be used to create companies in destinations like Intercom, HubSpot, Salesforce, ...

await client.upsertAccount({
  // Must provide either an domain or accountId or both
  accountId: "accountId", // Unique identifier for the account in your database
  domain: "acme-inc.com",

  // optional
  properties: {
    name: "ACME, Inc",
    mrr: 399,
    plan: "Pro",
    registered_at: new Date(/* ... */),
    is_paying: true,
    array_of_values: ["value1", "value2"],
    key_with_empty_value: "",
    this_property_will_be_deleted: null,
  }
});

Delete account

await client.deleteAccount({
  // Must provide either a domain or accountId or both
  accountId: "accountId", // Unique identifier for the account in your database
  domain: "test.com",
});

Add user(s) to an account

await client.addUsersToAccount(
  AccountIdentified.byAccountId("accountId"),
  [UserIdentified.byUserId("userId1"), UserIdentified.byEmail("user2@domain.tld")]
);

Remove user(s) from an account

When removing a user, the user will still be stored in journy.io, but marked as "removed".

await client.removeUsersFromAccount(
  AccountIdentified.byAccountId("accountId"),
  [UserIdentified.byUserId("userId1"), UserIdentified.byEmail("user2@domain.tld")]
);

Link web activity to a user

You can link web activity to a user in your application when you have our snippet installed on your website. The snippet sets a cookie named __journey. If the cookie exists, you can link the web activity to the user that is currently logged in:

if (request.cookies["__journey"]) {
  const result = await client.link({
    deviceId: request.cookies["__journey"],

    userId: request.user.id, // Unique identifier for the user in your database
    // or
    email: request.user.email,
  });
}

(The above example is for express based applications using https://github.com/expressjs/cookie-parser)

Add event

import { Event, UserIdentified, AccountIdentified } from "@journyio/sdk";

event = Event.forUser("login", UserIdentified.byUserId("userId"));

event = Event.forUser("some_historic_event", UserIdentified.byUserId("userId"))
  .happenedAt(new Date(...))
;

event = Event.forAccount("reached_monthly_volume", AccountIdentified.byAccountId("accountId"))
  .withMetadata({
    "number": 1313,
    "string": "string",
    "boolean": true,
  })
;

event = Event.forUserInAccount(
  "updated_settings",
  UserIdentified.byUserId("userId"),
  AccountIdentified.byAccountId("accountId")
);

await client.addEvent(event);

Get tracking snippet for a domain

const result = await client.getTrackingSnippet({
  domain: "www.journy.io",
});

if (result.success) {
  console.log(result.data.snippet); // string
  console.log(result.data.domain); // string
}

Handling errors

Every call will return a result, we don't throw errors when a call fails. We don't want to break your application when things go wrong. An exception will be thrown for required arguments that are empty or missing.

You can check whether the call succeeded using result.success:

const result = await client.getTrackingSnippet({
  domain: "www.journy.io",
});

if (!result.success) {
  console.log(result.error); // string
  console.log(result.requestId); // string
}

await client.getTrackingSnippet({
  domain: "", // empty string will throw
});

The request ID can be useful when viewing API logs in journy.io.
