Check if IP Address is a Bot Client Threat in Node.js

2 min readJan 11, 2022


It’s important that your security policies can detect bots, robots and any type of common non-user entity before they have a chance to wreak havoc on your system. This Bot Client detection iteration of the Cloudmersive Security Threat Detection API provides exactly this protection, using real-time signatures to check an IP address for Bot threats. This API is easy to use in Node.js following the below steps.

Let’s install the Node.js SDK by running the below command:

npm install cloudmersive-security-api-client --save

Or, for package.json, use the below snippet:

"dependencies": {
"cloudmersive-security-api-client": "^1.2.0"

After these initial steps, it’s smooth sailing — just copy in the ready-to-run code below and refer to the response model in figure 1 for a snapshot of how your results should appear.

var CloudmersiveSecurityApiClient = require('cloudmersive-security-api-client');
var defaultClient = CloudmersiveSecurityApiClient.ApiClient.instance;
// Configure API key authorization: Apikey
var Apikey = defaultClient.authentications['Apikey'];
Apikey.apiKey = 'YOUR API KEY';
var apiInstance = new CloudmersiveSecurityApiClient.NetworkThreatDetectionApi();var value = "value_example"; // String | IP address to check, e.g. \"\". The input is a string so be sure to enclose it in double-quotes.var callback = function(error, data, response) {
if (error) {
} else {
console.log('API called successfully. Returned data: ' + data);
apiInstance.networkThreatDetectionIsBot(value, callback);
