Siftscience API Library for Elixir

This library (based on the official SiftScience libraries) allows you to interact with the SiftScience API via various functions in Elixir.


First, add sift_ex to your mix.exs dependencies:

def deps do
  [{:sift_ex, "~> 0.1"}]

and run $ mix deps.get.


Set your Sift API key

Application.put_env(:sift_ex, :api_key, YOUR_API_KEY)

Set your Account ID (optional)

Application.put_env(:sift_ex, :account_id, YOUR_ACCOUNT_ID)

iex> SiftEx.start

# send a transaction event -- note this is blocking
iex> event = "$transaction"

iex> user_id = "23069"  # User ID's may only contain a-z, A-Z, 0-9, =, ., -, _, +, @, :, &, ^, %, !, $

iex> properties = %{
 "$user_id" => user_id,
  "$user_email" => "[email protected]",
  "$seller_user_id" => "2371",
  "seller_user_email" => "[email protected]",
  "$transaction_id" => "573050",
  "$payment_method" => %{
    "$payment_type"    => "$credit_card",
    "$payment_gateway" => "$braintree",
    "$card_bin"        => "542486",
    "$card_last4"      => "4444"             
  "$currency_code" => "USD",
  "$amount" => 15230000,

iex> response = SiftEx.track(event, properties)

iex> response["status"]  # returns Sift status, default is 0
iex> response["error_message"]  # returns Sift error message, default is "OK"
iex> IO.inspect response # for more details of the response format

# Request a score for the user with user_id 23069
response = SiftEx.score(user_id)

# Label the user with user_id 23069 as Bad with all optional fields
iex> response = SiftEx.label(user_id, %{
  "$is_bad" => true,
  "$abuse_type" => "payment_abuse",
  "$description" => "Chargeback issued",
  "$source" => "Manual Review",
  "$analyst" => "analyst.name@your_domain.com"

# Get the status of a workflow run
iex> response = SiftEx.get_workflow_status('my_run_id')

# Get the latest decisions for a user
iex> response = SiftEx.get_user_decisions('example_user_id')

# Get the latest decisions for an order
iex> response = SiftEx.get_order_decisions('example_order_id')
