    1.1.3 • Public • Published Node.js SDK

    This is the documentation for the Node.js SDK for API


    To view the API docs, click here.

    The SDK is organized to mirror the HTTP API's functionality and hierarchy. The top level object needed for SDKs functionality is the Session object which requires your API key and may require API version to be instantiated. You can create a new API key on the dashboard.


    1.1.0 - Addeed secondaryLoginId parameter to connection API

    1.0.1 - Documentation updated

    1.0.0 - SDK updated to version 2.0

    0.9.0beta - Initial release

    Getting started

    Install the SDK using:

    npm i -s basiq-sdk-nodejs

    Import the package:

    const BasiqSDK = require("basiq-sdk-nodejs");

    Common usage examples

    Fetching a list of institutions

    const BasiqSDK = require("basiq-sdk-nodejs");
    (async function() {
            const session = await BasiqSDK.Session("YOUR_API_KEY");
            const institutions = await session.getInstitutions();

    You can specify the version of API when instantiating Session object. When the version is not specified, default version is 1.0.

    const BasiqSDK = require("basiq-sdk-nodejs");
    (async function() {
            const session = await BasiqSDK.Session("YOUR_API_KEY", "2.0");
            const institutions = await session.getInstitutions();

    Creating a new connection

    const BasiqSDK = require("basiq-sdk-nodejs");
    (async function() {
            const session = await BasiqSDK.Session("YOUR_API_KEY");
            const user = session.forUser(userId)
            const job = await user.createConnection(institutionId, loginId, password[, securityCode, secondaryLoginId]);
            const connection = await job.waitForCredentials(1000, 60);

    Fetching and iterating through transactions

    const BasiqSDK = require("basiq-sdk-nodejs"),
        FilterBuilder = BasiqSDK.FilterBuilder;
    (async function() {
            const session = await BasiqSDK.Session("YOUR_API_KEY");
            const user = session.forUser(userId);
            try {
                    const fb = new FilterBuilder();
                    fb.eq("", connId);
                    const transactions = await user.getTransactions(fb);
                    while (await {
                            console.log("Number of records: ",;
            } catch (e) {
                    console.error(typeof e, e);


    The API of the SDK is manipulated using Services and Entities. Different services return different entities, but the mapping is not one to one. All http functions return promises. In case of a failed http resolution the promise rejection will return an error object.


    If an action encounters an error, you will receive an APIError instance. The object contains all available data which you can use to act accordingly.

    APIError properties

    Check the docs for more information about relevant fields in the error object.


    Some of the methods support adding filters to them. The filters are created using the FilterBuilder function. After instantiating the object, you can invoke methods in the form of comparison(field, value).


    const fb = new FilterBuilder();
    fb.eq("", "conn-id-213-id").gt("", "2018-01-01");
    const transactions = user.getTransactions(fb)

    This example filter for transactions will match all transactions for the connection with the id of "conn-id-213-id" and that are newer than "2018-01-01". All you have to do is pass the filter to the method when you want to use it.



    Creating a new Session object

    (possible API versions: "1.0" and "2.0", default version: "1.0")

    const session = await BasiqSDK.Session("YOUR_API_KEY");
    const session = await BasiqSDK.Session("YOUR_API_KEY", "API_VERSION");


    The following are APIs available for the User service

    Creating a new UserService
    const userService = BasiqSDK.User(session);
    Referencing a user

    Note: The following action will not send an HTTP request, and can be used to perform additional actions for the instantiated user.

    const user = userService.for(userId);
    Creating a new User
    const user = await{
            email: "",
            mobile: ""
