Querying Datasets with iex.js#

Use the iexjs library queryDataset method to search any Apperate dataset (Core or private) you have a token for.

Example: Searching a Dataset#

Once you’ve installed the iexjs package, instantiate a Client (passing in your API token and API version in place of TOKEN and VERSION below) and call queryDataset with the key (primary index), workspace, and dataset of the equity you want data for.

For example, if you want Apple cash flow records, pass in the Apple symbol AAPL for the key, CORE for the workspace, and CASH_FLOW for the dataset.

const {Client} = require("@apperate/iexjs")
const client = new Client({api_token: "TOKEN", version: "VERSION"});
client.apperate.queryData({key: "AAPL", workspace: "CORE", id: "CASH_FLOW"}).then((res) => {
    console.log(res);
});

Like all Core datasets, the CASH_FLOW dataset is in the CORE workspace. The CASH_FLOW dataset’s key property is symbol.

A dataset’s API doc shows the key, subkey (if any), and date properties. For example, the image below highlights the CASH_FLOW dataset’s key and date indexes in the https://iexcloud.io/docs/core/CASH_FLOW page’s Response Attributes section.

You can fine-tune your search by specifying additional GET /data query parameters.

For example, you can limit results to a particular time range using the from and to query parameters.

client.apperate.queryData({
    key: "AAPL", workspace: "CORE", id: "CASH_FLOW",
    from: "2019-01-01", to: "2019-07-01"}).then((res) => {
        console.log(res);
});

It’s that easy to query datasets from your JavaScript apps!
