🚀 Usage

First, create the PDLJS client:

📘 Documentation

All of our API endpoints are documented at: https://docs.peopledatalabs.com/

These docs describe the supported input parameters, output responses and also provide additional technical context.

As illustrated in the Endpoints section above, each of our API endpoints is mapped to a specific method in the PDLJS class. For each of these class methods, all function inputs are mapped as input parameters to the respective API endpoint, meaning that you can use the API documentation linked above to determine the input parameters for each endpoint.

As an example:

The following is valid because name is a supported input parameter to the Person Identify API:

PDLJS.person.identify({ name: 'sean thorne' })

Conversely, this would be invalid because fake_parameter is not an input parameter to the Person Identify API:

PDLJS.person.identify({ fake_parameter: 'anything' })

Special Note about Search API Support

Our Person Search API and Company Search API endpoints both support two types of query syntax: you can construct search queries using either SQL or Elasticsearch syntax.

In the PDLJS class, the person and company search functions are broken out into two syntax-specific methods as follows:

Data Type Search Query Syntax Function
Person SQL PDLJS.person.search.sql({ ...params })
Person Elasticsearch PDLJS.person.search.elastic({ ...params })
Company SQL PDLJS.company.search.sql({ ...params })
Company Elasticsearch PDLJS.company.search.elastic({ ...params })

You can pass your query to these methods using the special searchQuery function argument, as shown in the following example:

const sqlQuery = "SELECT * FROM company WHERE website='peopledatalabs.com';"

try {
  const response = await PDLJS.company.search.sql({ searchQuery: sqlQuery, size: 10 });

  console.log(response.total)
} catch (error) {
  console.log(error)
}

Upgrading to v6.X.X

NOTE: When upgrading to v6.X.X from vX.X.X and below, Retrieve and Bulk Retrieve were both changed to make the pretty, titlecase and filter_updated to be siblings of the requests parameter.

Upgrading to v5.X.X

NOTE: When upgrading to v5.X.X from v4.X.X and below, Bulk Enrichment was moved from PDLJS.person.bulk({ ...records }) to PDLJS.person.bulk.enrichment({ ...records })
