How to Validate Country Information in Node.JS

To keep your business running smoothly, your data collection should integrate validation procedures to ensure consistency and optimization across your systems. When working on a global scale, tracking location information is integral, and automating this process will allow you to comfortably continue your growth. The following API will help you retrieve normalized country information based on an input text string, providing data on the country’s full name, ISO 3166–1 codes, European Union Membership status, time zones, and currency.

To utilize this API, we will first have to install our client software:

npm install cloudmersive-validate-api-client --save

Or, you can add this snippet to your package.json:

"dependencies": {
"cloudmersive-validate-api-client": "^1.2.4"
}

Then, we can call our function, AddressCountry:

var CloudmersiveValidateApiClient = require('cloudmersive-validate-api-client');
var defaultClient = CloudmersiveValidateApiClient.ApiClient.instance;
// Configure API key authorization: Apikey
var Apikey = defaultClient.authentications['Apikey'];
Apikey.apiKey = 'YOUR API KEY';
var apiInstance = new CloudmersiveValidateApiClient.AddressApi();var input = new CloudmersiveValidateApiClient.ValidateCountryRequest(); // ValidateCountryRequest | Input requestvar callback = function(error, data, response) {
if (error) {
console.error(error);
} else {
console.log('API called successfully. Returned data: ' + data);
}
};
apiInstance.addressCountry(input, callback);

This will not only validate your input data, but also allow for the standardization of information across your systems. Your API Key can be found on the Cloudmersive website and provides access to 800 calls across all our APIs.
