IBM Node.js SDK Core

This project contains core functionality required by Node.js code generated by the IBM Cloud OpenAPI SDK Generator (openapi-sdkgen).

Installation

`npm install ibm-cloud-sdk-core`

Usage

This package exports a single object containing a number of modules as top level properties.

Example:

// this is TypeScript, since the `openapi-sdkgen` project generates TypeScript
import { BaseService } from 'ibm-cloud-sdk-core';
 
class YourSDK extends BaseService { ... }

Authentication

This library provides a set of Authenticators used to authenticate requests from an SDK. There are authenticators for the following authentication schemes:

  • No Auth
  • Basic
  • Bearer Token
  • IAM
  • CP4D

There are two ways to create an authenticator:

  1. Creating an instance and providing credentials programmatically
  2. Using the getAuthenticatorFromEnvironment function to create an authenticator from externally-provided configuration

For more information about the various authentication types and how to use them with your services, click here.

Examples

Programmatic

import { IamAuthenticator } from 'ibm-cloud-sdk-core';
 
const authenticator = new IamAuthenticator({
  apikey: '{apikey}',
});

External configuration

import { getAuthenticatorFromEnvironment } from 'ibm-cloud-sdk-core';
 
// env vars
// MY_SERVICE_AUTH_TYPE=iam
// MY_SERVICE_APIKEY=<apikey>
const iamAuthenticator = getAuthenticatorFromEnvironment('my-service');

Logging

This package uses debug for logging.

  • Logging is disabled by default.
  • Logging has been configured to use log levels which are assumed to be numerically ascending from most important to least important.
  • In order to see the log output, set the environment variable DEBUG including the desired log level.
    • DEBUG=ibm-cloud-sdk-core:error enables error logs
    • DEBUG=ibm-cloud-sdk-core:warning enables warning logs and below
    • DEBUG=ibm-cloud-sdk-core:info enables info logs and below
    • DEBUG=ibm-cloud-sdk-core:verbose enables verbose logs and below
    • DEBUG=ibm-cloud-sdk-core:debug enables debug logs and below

To see the output from all of the debugging levels you can use:

DEBUG=ibm-cloud-sdk-core*

The debug logger can be configured to be used for more than one library. In example, you can set a comma-separated string:

DEBUG=ibm-cloud-sdk-core:debug,other-lib:debug

Cookie Jar Support

By default, cookies are not supported in the SDK requests. If your SDK would benefit from this functionality, simply edit your code to instantiate a cookie jar (or instruct your users to do so) and pass it in the object containing configuration options to the BaseService class, as shown below.

import tough = require('tough-cookie');
 
class MyClass extends BaseService {
  constructor(options: MyOptions) {
    // pass the cookie jar object or simply pass the value `true`
    // and a tough-cookie instance will be created by default
    options.jar = new tough.CookieJar();
    super(options);
  }
}

The example above uses Tough Cookie to provide these capabilities, but other cookie jar libraries can be used.
