An App Store Connect API client for Node.js

Usage no npm install needed!

<script type="module">
  import okwenxiAppstoreconnectApi from 'https://cdn.skypack.dev/@okwenxi/appstoreconnect-api';



Unofficial REST API client for Apple's App Store Connect API

@latest Build Status install size


appstoreconnect has been tested to work on Node.js 8.0+. Use with any prior version is unsupported.

npm install appstoreconnect


// Import the API version from the package, which mirror Apple's API versioning
import { v1 } from 'appstoreconnect'

// Read .p8 private key from disk or from environment, and supply the issuer ID and key identifier as outlined here:
// https://developer.apple.com/documentation/appstoreconnectapi/generating_tokens_for_api_requests
const privateKey = '' // replace with the contents of your private key
const issuerId = '' // replace with your issuer ID
const keyId = '' // replace with your key ID

const token = v1.token(privateKey, issuerId, keyId)

// Initialize the service. Passing the token up-front is optional, but should be done before any API calls are made.
const api = v1(token)

// Compare to https://developer.apple.com/documentation/appstoreconnectapi/list_builds
  .listBuilds(api, {})
  .then(builds => console.log(builds))
  .catch(err => console.error(err))

All asynchronous functionality in appstoreconnect is driven using native Promises.


The App Store Connect API requires a JSON Web Token (JWT) for all API requests. appstoreconnect presents both synchronous and asynchronous interfaces for processing the token. You should feel free to use the one that fits best into your project. Both interfaces can surface errors, so use a try-catch where appropriate.

const token = v1.token(privateKey, issuerId, keyId)
async function myFunc() {
  try {
    const token = await v1.token(privateKey, issuerId, keyId)
  } catch (error) {
    throw error

For more information on how JWT works with the App Store Connect API, check out Apple's authentication guides:


This is an ongoing work-in-progress so I don't have many examples yet. If you have an idea for an example, please feel free to file an issue or a pull request!

API Reference

A proper API reference for appstoreconnect is coming soon, but in the meantime, much of the documentation is lifted from Apple's reference notes on the App Store Connect API here.
