Node.js SDK

Overview

Node.js server-side source allows you to collect server-side data and pull data directly from your servers and databases.

Node.js library will be most useful to you if you need to send data from a Node.js server, or for interacting with Intempt APIs in JavaScript outside of the browser.

This SDK is stateless and will only send the data you populate. In contrast, our web & mobile SDKs will automatically collect web and app, like device information or page/screen visited.

SDK capabilities:

  • Identify users
  • Record custom events
  • Track consents
  • Display experiments and personalization

Installation

Initialize the SDK

Install the SDK by running the npm package.

npm install intempt

To update to the latest version, run

npm install intempt@latest

Import

Use this command to import the whole SDK:

import {SDK} from "intempt/src";

or

const IntemptSdk = require('intempt/src/SDK')

Create instance

SDK constructor parameters description:

const intempt: SDK = new SDK(
    'demo-organization', // organization name
    'demo-project', // project name
    'YOUR_API_KEY', // api key (identifier.secret)
    '616010376811536384', // source id
    100, // batch time in milliseconds (optional)
    20 // max items batch size (optional)
)

🚧

Don't miss out!

Remember to replace "YOUR_API_KEY" with the API key you generated via API keys section.

Tracking methods

Restrictions

SDK has an event title parameter mandatory for almost all tracking methods. All event titles are acceptable except 'Identify' - it's the default event title for user identification.

Identify

Our SDK offers a convenient function to identify users using unique identifiers such as email or phone number. Simply call the functions provided below to utilize this feature effectively.

await intempt.identify(
    '1845348', // user profile identifier
    '[email protected]', // unique user identifier
    'Identify User', // event title (optional)
    {'country': 'USA'} // user attributes (optional)
)

Usage examples

Connect profileId with unique user identifier:

await intempt.identify('1845348', '[email protected]')

Connect profileId with unique user identifier having custom event name:

await intempt.identify('1845348', '[email protected]', 'Identify User')

Connect profileId with unique user identifier including user attributes. User attributes require a provided event title different from 'Identify':

await intempt.identify('1845348', '[email protected]', 'Identify User', {'country': 'USA'})

πŸ“˜

Important

In your server, it is advisable to use the Id of your users as profileId. That way, it is always unique and you don't need to have a randomizer or generator.

Group

Our SDK includes a function that helps you identify accounts using unique identifiers such as domain or work email. To leverage this functionality, simply invoke the functions listed below.

await intempt.group(
    '1845348', // user profile identifier
    'intempt.com', // unique account identifier
    'Identify Account', // event title (optional)
    {'country': 'USA'} // account attributes (optional)
)

Usage examples

Connect user profileId with unique account identifier:

await intempt.group('1845348', 'intempt.com')

Connect user profileId with unique account having custom event name:

await intempt.group('1845348', 'intempt.com', 'Identify Account')

Connect user profileId with unique account including account attributes. Account attributes require a provided event title different from 'Identify':

await intempt.group('1845348', 'intempt.com', 'Identify UsAccounter', {'company_country': 'USA'})

Track

The SDK enables you to track custom events, such as 'Purchase' or 'Add to Cart,' by profileId. To monitor these user actions, simply call the method provided below.

await intempt.track(
    '1845348', // user profile identifier
    'Purchase', // event title 
    {'purchase_amount': 50.0, 'product_name': 'Shoes'} // event properties
)

Usage examples

Method call example:

await intempt.track('1845348', 'Purchase', {'price_amount': 50, 'product_name': 'Shoes'})

Alias

The SDK offers a convenient method to merge two separate user profiles, such as one identified by email and another by phone number, into a single user profile. By linking the two different identifiers, the system will consolidate them into one unified user, associating both the email and phone number with a single user record. Refer to the function below to perform this merge.

await intempt.alias(
    '1845348', // user profile identifier
    '[email protected]', // first user identifier
    '555-555-1234' // second user identifier to merge with
)

Usage examples

Method call example:

await intempt.alias('1845348', '[email protected]', '555-555-1234')

Record

The SDK offers a versatile method for configuring tracking with extensive customization options. This method enables you to tailor tracking settings according to your specific requirements without restrictions. It provides flexibility to define and monitor data at a granular level, ensuring you can capture and analyze all necessary information for comprehensive insights. Use the function below to access these advanced configuration capabilities.

await intempt.record(
    '1845348', // user profile identifier
    'Purchase', // event title
    '[email protected]', // unique user identifier (optional)
    'intempt.com', // unique account identifier (optional)
    {'purchase_amount': 50.0, 'product_name': 'Shoes'}, // event properties
    {'country': 'USA'}, // user attributes
    {'company_country': 'USA'} // account attributes
)

Usage examples

Record the item with event properties and user, account identifiers:

await intempt.record('1845348', 'Purchase', '[email protected]', 'intempt.com', {'purchase_amount': 50.0, 'product_name': 'Shoes'})

Record the item with event properties, user identifier, and attributes:

await intempt.record('1845348', 'Purchase', '[email protected]', undefined, {'purchase_amount': 50.0, 'product_name': 'Shoes'}, {'country': 'USA'})

Record the item with event properties account identifier, and attributes:

await intempt.record('1845348', 'Purchase', undefined, 'intempt.com', {'purchase_amount': 50.0, 'product_name': 'Shoes'}, undefined, {'company_country': 'USA'})

OptIn

This method activates the tracking of user data, allowing you to monitor and analyze user interactions and behaviors. By enabling this feature, you can collect valuable data that can provide insights into user preferences, activities, and trends. By default, it's enabled.

await intempt.optIn()

OptOut

This method disables the tracking of user data, ensuring that no further information about user interactions and behaviors is collected. By turning off this feature, you can respect user privacy and comply with data protection regulations. Use this function when you need to halt the monitoring and analysis of user data, whether temporarily or permanently. This method provides control over your data collection practices and can be a crucial part of your privacy and compliance strategy.

await intempt.optOut()

Consents methods

Consents

This method manages all user consents for data tracking. It allows you to handle user preferences regarding the collection and processing of their data. By invoking this function, you can set and update a user's consent status, ensuring that your application adheres to privacy regulations and respects user choices.

await intempt.consents(
    '1845348', // user profile identifier
    'accept', // consent action 'accept' or 'reject' allowed
    '1711705256000', // consents expiration time in ms (optional)
    '[email protected]', // user consents email (optional)
    'consents message' // user consents message (optional)
)

Usage examples

Update all consents:

await intempt.consents('1845348', 'accept')

Update all consents with the user's email and message:

await intempt.consents('1845348', 'accept', undefined, '[email protected]', 'consents message')

Consent

This method in the library allows you to manage the single consent for a specific type of user data tracking. By calling this function, you can enable or disable tracking for a particular data category according to the user's preference.

await intempt.consent(
    '1845348', // user profile identifier
    'accept', // consent action 'accept' or 'reject' allowed
    'GDPR', // consent category
    '1711705256000', // consents expiration time in ms (optional)
    '[email protected]', // user consents email (optional)
    'consents message' // user consents message (optional)
)

Usage examples

Update single consent:

await intempt.consent('1845348', 'accept', 'GDPR')

Update single consent with the user's email and message:

await intempt.consent('1845348', 'accept', 'GDPR', undefined, '[email protected]', 'consents message')
