Marketplace Metering Client - AWS SDK for JavaScript v3

@aws-sdk/client-marketplace-metering

NPM version NPM downloads

Description

AWS SDK for JavaScript MarketplaceMetering Client for Node.js, Browser and React Native.

AWS Marketplace Metering Service

This reference provides descriptions of the low-level AWS Marketplace Metering Service API.

AWS Marketplace sellers can use this API to submit usage data for custom usage dimensions.

For information on the permissions you need to use this API, see AWS Marketplace metering and entitlement API permissions in the AWS Marketplace Seller Guide.

Submitting Metering Records

  • MeterUsage - Submits the metering record for an AWS Marketplace product. MeterUsage is called from an EC2 instance or a container running on EKS or ECS.

  • BatchMeterUsage - Submits the metering record for a set of customers. BatchMeterUsage is called from a software-as-a-service (SaaS) application.

Accepting New Customers

  • ResolveCustomer - Called by a SaaS application during the registration process. When a buyer visits your website during the registration process, the buyer submits a Registration Token through the browser. The Registration Token is resolved through this API to obtain a CustomerIdentifier

    along with the CustomerAWSAccountId and ProductCode.

Entitlement and Metering for Paid Container Products

  • Paid container software products sold through AWS Marketplace must integrate with the AWS Marketplace Metering Service and call the RegisterUsage operation for software entitlement and metering. Free and BYOL products for Amazon ECS or Amazon EKS aren't required to call RegisterUsage, but you can do so if you want to receive usage data in your seller reports. For more information on using the RegisterUsage operation, see Container-Based Products.

BatchMeterUsage API calls are captured by AWS CloudTrail. You can use Cloudtrail to verify that the SaaS metering records that you sent are accurate by searching for records with the eventName of BatchMeterUsage. You can also use CloudTrail to audit records over time. For more information, see the AWS CloudTrail User Guide.

Installing

To install the this package, simply type add or install @aws-sdk/client-marketplace-metering using your favorite package manager:

  • npm install @aws-sdk/client-marketplace-metering
  • yarn add @aws-sdk/client-marketplace-metering
  • pnpm add @aws-sdk/client-marketplace-metering

Getting Started

Import

The AWS SDK is modulized by clients and commands. To send a request, you only need to import the MarketplaceMeteringClient and the commands you need, for example BatchMeterUsageCommand:

// ES5 example
const { MarketplaceMeteringClient, BatchMeterUsageCommand } = require("@aws-sdk/client-marketplace-metering");
// ES6+ example
import { MarketplaceMeteringClient, BatchMeterUsageCommand } from "@aws-sdk/client-marketplace-metering";

Usage

To send a request, you:

  • Initiate client with configuration (e.g. credentials, region).
  • Initiate command with input parameters.
  • Call send operation on client with command object as input.
  • If you are using a custom http handler, you may call destroy() to close open connections.
// a client can be shared by different commands.
const client = new MarketplaceMeteringClient({ region: "REGION" });

const params = {
  /** input parameters */
};
const command = new BatchMeterUsageCommand(params);

Async/await

We recommend using await operator to wait for the promise returned by send operation as follows:

// async/await.
try {
  const data = await client.send(command);
  // process data.
} catch (error) {
  // error handling.
} finally {
  // finally.
}

Async-await is clean, concise, intuitive, easy to debug and has better error handling as compared to using Promise chains or callbacks.

Promises

You can also use Promise chaining to execute send operation.

client.send(command).then(
  (data) => {
    // process data.
  },
  (error) => {
    // error handling.
  }
);

Promises can also be called using .catch() and .finally() as follows:

client
  .send(command)
  .then((data) => {
    // process data.
  })
  .catch((error) => {
    // error handling.
  })
  .finally(() => {
    // finally.
  });

Callbacks

We do not recommend using callbacks because of callback hell, but they are supported by the send operation.

// callbacks.
client.send(command, (err, data) => {
  // process err and data.
});

v2 compatible style

The client can also send requests using v2 compatible style. However, it results in a bigger bundle size and may be dropped in next major version. More details in the blog post on modular packages in AWS SDK for JavaScript

import * as AWS from "@aws-sdk/client-marketplace-metering";
const client = new AWS.MarketplaceMetering({ region: "REGION" });

// async/await.
try {
  const data = await client.batchMeterUsage(params);
  // process data.
} catch (error) {
  // error handling.
}

// Promises.
client
  .batchMeterUsage(params)
  .then((data) => {
    // process data.
  })
  .catch((error) => {
    // error handling.
  });

// callbacks.
client.batchMeterUsage(params, (err, data) => {
  // process err and data.
});

Troubleshooting

When the service returns an exception, the error will include the exception information, as well as response metadata (e.g. request id).

try {
  const data = await client.send(command);
  // process data.
} catch (error) {
  const { requestId, cfId, extendedRequestId } = error.$$metadata;
  console.log({ requestId, cfId, extendedRequestId });
  /**
   * The keys within exceptions are also parsed.
   * You can access them by specifying exception names:
   * if (error.name === 'SomeServiceException') {
   *     const value = error.specialKeyInException;
   * }
   */
}
