Veritone JS client library


We provide bundles for the browser and for node.

Install the package: npm install --save veritone-client-js

in your code, import either veritone-client-js/dist/bundle-browser or veritone-client-js/dist/bundle-node, as described below.

Getting a token

See the docs on authentication at

Constructing the api client

// in a browser:
import veritoneApi from 'veritone-client-js/dist/bundle-browser'
// in Node:
const veritoneApi = require('veritone-client-js/dist/bundle-node')

const client = veritoneApi({
    // requires either session AND api tokens (from user object):
    token: 'my-session-token',
    apiToken: 'my-api-token',

    // OR an oauth token (from oauth grant flow)
    oauthToken: 'my-oauth-token',

    // optional (defaults shown):
    baseUrl: '',
    maxRetries: 1,
    retryIntervalMs: 1000

Making an API call


// handlers support both promise and callback styles:

// Callbacks are node-style (err, data).
// Verify err === null before accessing data.

client.recording.getRecordings(function (err, recordings) {
    if (err) {
        // err is an Error or ApiError instance (see ApiError below)
        return console.warn(err);

    recordings.forEach(function (recording) {

// promise style
    .then(function (recordings) {
        recordings.forEach(function (recording) {
    .catch(function (err) {
        // err is an Error or ApiError instance (see ApiError below)

If the handler has options, provide them as specified:

client.recording.getRecordings({ offset: 5, limit: 10 }, function (err, recordings) {
    // ...

The callback is always the final (optional) argument


Each handler supports overriding API client options and some request options on a per-call basis. The options object is always the last (when using promise style), or second to last (when a callback is provided) argument.

    { offset: 5, limit: 10 },
        maxRetries: 0,
        headers: {
            'My-Additional-Header': 'hi'
    function (err, recordings) {
    // ...

Supported per-call overrides:

  • maxRetries -- number
  • retryIntervalMs -- number
  • timeoutMs -- number
  • headers -- object
  • transformResponseData -- function
  • validateStatus -- number => bool
  • version -- number



Errors related to API calls, including responses with status > 300 and network error are wrapped by ApiError.

ApiError fields

  • status -- The status code returned by the server
  • message -- A string describing the error, if available
  • data -- Error response from the server. May be a string, object, array, etc, depending on the endpoint.
  • nativeError -- the raw client error (todo)

Creating new endpoints


const {
            // default options for this request, if different from defaults
            _requestOptions = {
                // maxRetries,
                // retryIntervalMs,
                // timeoutMs,
                // headers,
                // transformResponseData,
                // validateStatus
                // tokenType
                // version
        } = request;
