Consul

This is a Consul client.

Documentation

See the official HTTP API docs for more information.

Consul([options])

Initialize a new Consul client.

Options

  • host (String, default: 127.0.0.1): agent address
  • port (Integer, default: 8500): agent HTTP(S) port
  • secure (Boolean, default: false): enable HTTPS
  • defaults (Object, optional): common method call options that will be included with every call (ex: set default
    token
    ), these options can be override on a per call basis

Advanced options

  • agent (http.Agent|https.Agent, optionals): if not set uses the global agent
  • tls options: ca, cert, ciphers, clientCertEngine, crl, dhparam, ecdhCurve, honorCipherOrder, key, passphrase, pfx, rejectUnauthorized, secureOptions, secureProtocol, servername, and sessionIdContext (see Node.js docs for details)

Usage

const Consul = require('consul');

const consul = new Consul();

Common Method Call Options

These options can be included with any method call, although only certain endpoints support them. See the HTTP API for more information.

  • dc (String, optional): datacenter (defaults to local for agent)
  • wan (Boolean, default: false): return WAN members instead of LAN members
  • consistent (Boolean, default: false): require strong consistency
  • stale (Boolean, default: false): use whatever is available, can be arbitrarily stale
  • index (String, optional): used with
    ModifyIndex
    to block and wait for changes
  • wait (String, optional): limit how long to wait for changes (ex:
    5m
    ), used with index
  • token (String, optional): ACL token
  • near (String, optional): used to sort the node list in ascending order based on the estimated round trip time from that node
  • node-meta (String[], optional): used to specify a desired node metadata key/value pair of the form key:value
  • filter (String, optional): used to refine a data query for some API listing endpoints

These options work for all methods.

  • ctx (EventEmitter, optional): emit
    cancel
    to abort request
  • timeout (Number|String, optional): number of milliseconds before request is aborted (ex:
    1000
    or
    1s
    )

consul.transaction.create(operations)

operations: The body of the request should be a list of operations to perform inside the atomic transaction. Up to 64 operations may be present in a single transaction.

Usage

javascript
await consul.transaction.create([
  {
    {
      KV: {
        Verb: 'set',
        Key: 'key1',
        Value: Buffer.from('value1').toString('base64')
      }
    },{
      KV: {
        Verb: 'delete',
        Key: 'key2'
      }
    }
  }
]);

consul.watch(options)

Watch an endpoint for changes.

The watch relies on blocking queries, adding the

index
and
wait
parameters as per Consul's documentation

If a blocking query is dropped due to a Consul crash or disconnect, watch will attempt to reinitiate the blocking query with logarithmic backoff.

Upon reconnect, unlike the first call to watch() in which the latest

x-consul-index
is unknown, the last known
x-consul-index
will be reused, thus not emitting the
change
event unless it has been incremented since.

NOTE: If you specify an alternative options.timeout keep in mind that a small random amount of additional wait is added to all requests (wait / 16). The default timeout is currently set to (wait + wait * 0.1), you should use something similar to avoid issues.

Options

  • method (Function): method to watch
  • options (Object): method options
  • backoffFactor (Integer, default: 100): backoff factor in milliseconds to apply between attempts (
    backoffFactor * (2 ^ retry attempt)
    )
  • backoffMax (Integer, default: 30000): maximum backoff time in milliseconds to wait between attempts
  • maxAttempts (Integer): maximum number of retry attempts to make before giving up

Usage

const watch = consul.watch({
  method: consul.kv.get,
  options: { key: 'test' },
  backoffFactor: 1000,
});

watch.on('change', (data, res) => { console.log('data:', data); });

watch.on('error', (err) => { console.log('error:', err); });

setTimeout(() => { watch.end(); }, 30 * 1000);
