Http JSON body parser middleware for the middy framework

Middy http-json-body-parser middleware

Middy logo

HTTP json body parser middleware for the middy framework, the stylish Node.js middleware engine for AWS Lambda

This middleware automatically parses HTTP requests with a JSON body and converts the body into an object. Also handles gracefully broken JSON as UnprocessableEntity (422 errors) if used in combination with httpErrorHandler.

It can also be used in combination with validator as a prior step to normalize the event body input as an object so that the content can be validated.


To install this middleware you can use NPM:

npm install --save @middy/http-json-body-parser


  • reviver (function) (optional): A reviver parameter may be passed which will be used JSON.parseing the body.

Sample usage

const middy = require('@middy/core')
const httpJsonBodyParser = require('@middy/http-json-body-parser')

const handler = middy((event, context, cb) => {
  cb(null, {})


// invokes the handler
const event = {
  headers: {
    'Content-Type': 'application/json'
  body: JSON.stringify({foo: 'bar'})
handler(event, {}, (_, body) => {
  expect(body).toEqual({foo: 'bar'})
