Call the Kinde API - NodeJS example

Link to this section

If you don’t use Postman or other similar tools to test your connections, here’s an example of how to call the Kinde Management API in NodeJS.

  1. Add a machine to machine application for API access, and copy the App keys - Domain, Client ID and Client secret from the application.

  2. Call the Kinde token endpoint using the app key details you copied at step 1. Here’s a code sample in NodeJS. This should return an access token.

    const getAccessToken = async () => {
        try {
            const searchParams = {
                grant_type: "client_credentials",
                client_id: "<your_client_id>",
                client_secret: "<your_secret_id>",
                audience: "https://<your_subdomain>.kinde.com/api"
            };
    
            const res = await fetch("https://<your_subdomain>.kinde.com/oauth2/token", {
                method: "POST",
                headers: {
                    "Content-Type": "application/x-www-form-urlencoded"
                },
                body: new URLSearchParams(searchParams)
            });
            const token = await res.json();
            console.log({token});
        } catch (err) {
            console.error(err);
        }
    };
  3. Use the access token to call the Kinde management API. Here’s an example of calling the users endpoint in NodeJS:

    const getUsers = async () => {
      const accessToken = await getAccessToken();
    
      const headers = {
        'Accept': 'application/json',
        'Authorization':  `Bearer ${accessToken}`
      };
     try {
      const res = await fetch('https://<your_subdomain>.kinde.com/api/v1/users', {
        method: 'GET',
        headers: headers
      });
      const data = await res.json();
      console.log({data});
     } catch (err) {
      console.error(err);
    }
