    Ask Kodiak Node.js SDK

    Table of Contents


    The Ask Kodiak Node.js SDK is a lightweight node implementation of the Ask Kodiak API for node.js environments. API Keys are required to use, you can obtain those keys from Company Settings once you've created an Ask Kodiak account.

    The Ask Kodiak Node.js SDK supports node.js version 12.0 and higher.


    The Ask Kodiak Node.js SDK is available on npm as ask-kodiak-sdk.

    npm install --save ask-kodiak-sdk

    Import into your project as a module and go to town.

    Before making requests you must call the init() method one time with your group id and key. This sets up the module with your credential for subsequent requests and verifies connectivity. You only need to do this once. You can find your key and group id in your company settings in Ask Kodiak.

    const askkodiak = require('ask-kodiak-sdk'),
          key = 'your api key', //get this from your Company Settings in Ask Kodiak,
          gid = 'your group id', //get this from your Company Settings in Ask Kodiak,
          ready = await askkodiak.init(gid, key); // you must call init one time with your gid and key before making requests.
          // now ready to make requests...

    For any API request that supports optional request parameters, pass a paramsObj object to the method with those values. For example, if making a request where it's important to filter by geography and owner, you would pass the following paramsObj object to the method:

      geos: ['US-MN','US-HI'],
      owners: 'ABC123'

    To make GET requests:

    // get ref data for Canadian territories or provinces only.
    // url, request parameters object
    var canadianPlaces = await askkodiak.get('ref-data/geos', {countries: 'CA', subdivisionTypes: ['territory', 'province']});

    To make POST requests:

    // url, post body, request parameters object
    var companies = await'products/by-company',
        virtualCompanies: [
            name: 'Virtual Carrier Mutual',
            logo: '',
            productTag: 'virtual'
        naicsGroups: '722514'

    For a full list of options supported by each interface, see the Ask Kodiak API documentation.


    Version 3 brings with it breaking changes. Endpoint specific interfaces have been removed in favor of universal get and post methods. Please update your implementation accordingly.

    var response = await askkodiak.productsForCode('44-45');
    // AFTER
    var response = await askkodiak.get('products/class-code/naics/44-45');
