    PowerAuth Test Client for JavaScript

    npm license released

    This library provides client written in TypeScript that allows you to conenct directly to the PowerAuth Server's RESTful API. This is useful for various integration testing purposes for projects that needs to test the functionality against real PowerAuth Server.

    This library shold not be used in production application. You usually don't have direct access to PowerAuth Server in production.


    Install the package via npm as a development dependency:

    npm i powerauth-js-test-client -D


    The basic configuration is easy:

    import { Config, PowerAuthTestServer } from 'powerauth-js-test-client'
    async function prepareTestServer(): Promise<PowerAuthTestServer> {
        const server = new PowerAuthTestServer({ connection: { baseUrl: "http://localhost:8080/powerauth-java-server"}})
        await server.connect()
        return server

    For more details, check documentation for Config interface. You can also check tests/config/config.ts file to see how this library is preparing configuration for its own tests.


    ActivationHelper class

    The ActivationHelper class simplifies regular tasks with activation creation. To create a propper instance of this object you need to have implementation that provides PowerAuth mobile SDK functionality. In this example, we'll use our react-native wrapper as such provider:

    import { ActivationHelper, PowerAuthTestServer } from 'powerauth-js-test-client'
    import { PowerAuth, PowerAuthActivation, PowerAuthAuthentication, PowerAuthCreateActivationResult } from 'react-native-powerauth-mobile-sdk'
    type RNActivationHelper = ActivationHelper<PowerAuth, PowerAuthCreateActivationResult>
    const PA_SERVER_URL = "http://localhost:8080/powerauth-java-server"
    const PA_ENROLLMENT = "http://localhost:8080/enrollment-server"
    const PA_INSTANCE = 'your-app-instance-id'
    export interface CustomActivationHelperPrepareData extends ActivationHelperPrepareData {
        instanceId?: string
     * Function create instnace of activation helper typed with RN wrapper objects.
    async function getActivationHelper(): Promise<RNActivationHelper> {
        const cfg = { connection: { baseUrl: PA_SERVER_URL}}
        const helper: RNActivationHelper = await ActivationHelper.createWithConfig(cfg)
        helper.createSdk = async (appSetup, prepareData) => {
            // Prepare instanceId. We're using custom data in prepare interface to keep instance id.
            const instanceId = (prepareData as CustomActivationHelperPrepareData).instanceId ?? PA_INSTANCE
            const sdk = new PowerAuth(instanceId)
            if (await sdk.isConfigured()) {
                await sdk.deconfigure() // depending on whether you expect config changes
            const unsecure = PA_ENROLLMENT.startsWith('http://')
            await sdk.configure(appSetup.appKey, appSetup.appSecret, appSetup.masterServerPublicKey, PA_ENROLLMENT, unsecure)
            return sdk
        helper.prepareStep = async (helper, activation, prepareData) => {
            if (!prepareData) throw new Error('Missing prepare data object')
            if (!prepareData.password) throw new Error('Missing password in prepare data object')
            const sdk = await helper.getPowerAuthSdk()
            const deviceName = 'Test device'
            const activationData = PowerAuthActivation.createWithActivationCode(activation.activationCode!, deviceName)
            // Create activation
            const result = await sdk.createActivation(activationData)
            // Commit activation locally
            const auth = new PowerAuthAuthentication()
            auth.usePossession = true
            auth.userPassword = prepareData.password
            auth.useBiometry = prepareData.useBiometry ?? false
            if (auth.useBiometry) {
                auth.biometryMessage = "Enable biometry"
            await sdk.commitActivation(auth)
            return result
        return helper
     * Function prepare activation to active state.
    async function prepareActivationWithHelper(prepareData: CustomActivationHelperPrepareData): Promise<RNActivationHelper> {
        const config = { connection: { baseUrl: PA_SERVER_URL }}
        const helper = await createActivationHelper(config, prepareData)
        await helper.createActivation(helper.userId, prepareData)
        return helper

    Once the activation helper is created, then you can use it in tests. For example:

    describe('Manage PowerAuth applications', () => {
        let activationHelper: RNActivationHelper
        beforeEach(async () => {
            activationHelper = await prepareActivationWithHelper({ password: "1234" })
        afterEach(async () => {
            await activationHelper.cleanup()
        test('Test activation block and unblock', async () => {
            await activationHelper.blockActivation('TEST-REASON')
            const status = await activationHelper.getActivationStatus()

    PowerAuthTestServer class

    The PowerAuthTestServer class provides subset of PowerAuth Server RESTful API that allows you to manupulate activations. You can construct this object on your own, or simply use activationHelper.server property to access helper's own instance. You can check documentation for this class for more details.
