An enterprise-grade Database is provided as a Service (DBaaS) solution that can be managed through a browser-based "Data Center Designer" (DCD) tool or via an easy to use API.

The API allows you to create additional database clusters or modify existing ones. It is designed to allow users to leverage the same power and flexibility found within the DCD visual tool. Both tools are consistent with their concepts and lend well to making the experience smooth and intuitive.


Install the following dependencies:

npm i --save @ionos-cloud/sdk-nodejs-dbaas-postgres


Import the SDK using:

const sdk = require('@ionos-cloud/sdk-nodejs-dbaas-postgres')

Or, if the import is done from an ES module, use:

import * as sdk from '@ionos-cloud/sdk-nodejs-dbaas-postgres';

Usage example:

const sdk = require('@ionos-cloud/sdk-nodejs-dbaas-postgres')

const config = new sdk.Configuration({username: 'username_here', password: 'password_here'});
const clustersApi = new sdk.ClustersApi(config);

clustersApi.clustersGet().then((response) => console.log(response));


The username and password or the authentication token can be manually specified when initializing the SDK client:

const config = new sdk.Configuration({username: 'username_here', password: 'password_here'});
const clustersApi = new sdk.ClustersApi(config);

Environment variables can also be used; the SDK uses the following variables:

  • IONOS_USERNAME - to specify the username used to login

  • IONOS_PASSWORD - to specify the password

  • IONOS_TOKEN - if an authentication token is being used

In this case, the client configuration must be initialized using fromEnv():

const client = new sdk.ClustersApi(sdk.Configuration.fromEnv());

Warning: Make sure to follow the Information Security Best Practices when using credentials within your code or storing them in a file.
