PDJS (PagerDuty base JavaScript API) for Node

This is a simple JavaScript wrapper to the PagerDuty API

Making an API request

  1. Create a PDJSobj, with a subdomain and a token/api key

It was forked from and modified to also run in Node.js


npm install node-pdjs

In Node.js

var PDJSobj = require('node-pdjs');

In browser environment

Download pdjs.js file

<!-- Include jQuery -->
<script src=""></script> 
<!-- Include pdjs.js file -->
<script src="path/to/pdjs.js"></script>


    PDJS = new PDJSobj({
      token: "****************VDzA",

This configuration uses version 2 of the PagerDuty REST and Events API as default. To request version 1, the api version needs to be specified on instantiation of the PDJSObj. The api_version parameter is optional.

PDJS = new PDJSobj({
  subdomain: 'webdemo',
  token: 'rcgtBVpizBZQjDzE3Hub',
  api_version: 'v1'
  1. Call an api request:
  • the res parameter is the URL path of the resource you want
  • the data parameter is optional

PDJS.api({ res: 'services', data: { limit: 20, }, success: function (data) { console.log(data) }, })

Making an API request

  1. Create a PDJSobj, with a token/api key
  2. Call an api request:
  • the res parameter is the URL path of the resource you want
  • the data parameter is optional
  1. Everything is asynchronous so you'll need:
  • a function to use on success
  • also optional is an error function

The res parameter may have an ID in it, here's the call to get the notes for incident PNCII2E

      res: 'incidents/PNCII2E/notes',
      success: function (data) {

POST and PUT requests are supported as well (although I can't give you any live examples, since the API key from webdemo is read-only, so go ahead and generate an API key from your own account)

For instance, here I'm adding a contact method for a user:, and then adding a notification rule to alert that email address after 900 minutes:

add_contact_method = function(user_id) {
    res: 'users/'+user_id+'/contact_methods',
    type: 'POST',
    data: {
      contact_method: {
        label: 'Added from PDJS',
    success: function (data) {
      console.log('New contact method ID: ' +
      add_notification_rule(user_id,, 900)

add_notification_rule = function(user_id, contact_method, start_delay_in_minutes) {
    res: 'users/'+user_id+'/notification_rules',
    type: 'POST',
    data: {
      notification_rule: {
        contact_method_id: contact_method,
        start_delay_in_minutes: start_delay_in_minutes,
    success: function (data) {
      console.log('New notification rule ID: ' +


Triggering an incident (V2)

With Events API V2, alerts can be grouped with the same dedup_key.

  routing_key: '<v2 integration key>',
  event_action: 'trigger',
  data: {
    summary: 'Server on Fire',
    source: 'pdjs',
    severity: 'info'

Triggering an incident (V2)

The integration API has its own function as well

  service_key: '5eb2b9dae1b2480abf59f58c78ba06e7',
  description: 'Server on Fire',
  incident_key: (new Date()).toString(),
  details: {
    cause: 'PEBKAC'

Again, you can specify a success function that will get a JavaScript object representing the incident:

  status: 'success',
  message: 'Event processed',
  incident_key: '8a803874eda340a09928f2631a39378d'

The api_all helper

There's also a helper method that will handle limits and offsets for lists longer than 100 elements:

  res: 'incidents',
  data: {
    since: '2013-08-01T09:53:17-07:00',
    until: '2013-08-14T09:53:17-07:00',
    status: 'resolved',
    fields: 'incident_number,status,created_on,service'
  final_success: function(data) {
    console.log( + ' objects!');
  incremental_success: function(data) {
    console.log('Got data');

It works the same, except you'll need to specify one or more of:

  • a function to run on final_success at the end
  • a function to run on each incremental_success

That's kind of nifty.


There's an examples directory:

To compile the base script:

This is written in CoffeeScript, so you're going to have to compile it to get JavaScript

coffee --output js/ --compile --watch --join pdjs.js coffee/ &

More info

This project is forked from

It was originally written in CoffeeScript; however, this fork just updates the compiled pdjs.js file.

Are you using this? Let us know! @pagerduty or add it to our addons repo:


You might notice that PDJS sends along some extra parameters, nothing scary, we use those to track QoS across our language-specific libraries.

Possibly also of interest is node-pagerduty to trigger PagerDuty incidents from node.js.
