Middy validator middleware

Middy logo

Validator middleware for the middy framework, the stylish Node.js middleware engine for AWS Lambda

This middleware automatically validates incoming events and outgoing responses against custom schemas defined with the JSON schema syntax.

If an incoming event fails validation a BadRequest error is raised. If an outgoing response fails validation a InternalServerError error is raised.

This middleware can be used in combination with httpErrorHandler to automatically return the right response to the user.

It can also be used in combination with httpcontentnegotiation to load localised translations for the error messages (based on the currently requested language). This feature uses internally ajv-i18n module, so reference to this module for options and more advanced use cases. By default the language used will be English (en), but you can redefine the default language by passing it in the ajvOptions options with the key defaultLanguage and specifying as value one of the supported locales.

Install

To install this middleware you can use NPM:

npm install --save @middy/validator

Options

  • inputSchema (object) (optional): The JSON schema object that will be used to validate the input (handler.event) of the Lambda handler.
  • outputSchema (object) (optional): The JSON schema object that will be used to validate the output (handler.response) of the Lambda handler.
  • ajvOptions (object) (optional): Options to pass to ajv class constructor. Defaults are {v5: true, coerceTypes: 'array', $data: true, allErrors: true, useDefaults: true, defaultLanguage: 'en'}

Sample usage

Example for input validation:

const middy = require('@middy/core')
const validator = require('@middy/validator')
 
const handler = middy((event, context, cb) => {
  cb(null, {})
})
 
const schema = {
  required: ['body', 'foo'],
  properties: {
    // this will pass validation
    body: {
      type: 'string'
    },
    // this won't as it won't be in the event
    foo: {
      type: 'string'
    }
  }
}
 
handler.use(validator({
  inputSchema: schema
}))
 
// invokes the handler, note that property foo is missing
const event = {
  body: JSON.stringify({something: 'somethingelse'})
}
handler(event, {}, (err, res) => {
  expect(err.message).toEqual('Event object failed validation')
})

Example for output validation:

const middy = require('@middy/core')
const validator = require('@middy/validator')
 
const handler = middy((event, context, cb) => {
  cb(null, {})
})
 
const schema = {
  required: ['body', 'statusCode'],
  properties: {
    body: {
      type: 'object'
    },
    statusCode: {
      type: 'number'
    }
  }
}
 
handler.use(validator({outputSchema: schema}))
 
handler({}, {}, (err, response) => {
  expect(err).not.toBe(null)
  expect(err.message).toEqual('Response object failed validation')
  expect(response).not.toBe(null) // it doesn't destroy the response so it can be used by other middlewares
})
