What would you like to do?
Authenticate your NL API connection and set a variable with the bearer token in node.js / javascript
var uname = "";
var pass = "fakePassword";
// Get a token from the NL API by creating a promise that retrieves the token when needed.
const token = new Promise((resolve, reject) => { //we're setting the variable 'token' to the value that is returned
var jsonBody = { "username": uname, "password": pass };
fetch("", { //send the username and password to the auth endpoint
method: "POST",
headers: {
"Content-Type": "application/json; charset=utf-8"
body: JSON.stringify(jsonBody) //get the response which contains the token text
.then((response) => response.text()) // the response from the API is in plain text
.then((res) => resolve(res)); // resolve the promise with the value of the token returned
