How to create application with custom profile with @okta/okta-sdk-nodejs

I’m trying to use @okta/okta-sdk-nodejs to create application with custom app level profile attributes. According to the API document I can set profile field. However in @okta/okta-sdk-nodejs , ApplicationOptions type doesn’t have profile field.

Any help would be grateful

You might want to create an issue for the SDK.

For the time you can use the generic syntax which can be used to call APIs not implemented by the SDK.

  const application = {
    name: 'template_basic_auth',
    label: 'My Sample Basic Auth App',
    signOnMode: 'BASIC_AUTH',
    settings: {
      app: {
        url: '',
        authURL: ''
    profile: {
      key1: 'value1',
      key2: 'value2'
  const url = `${client.baseUrl}/api/v1/apps`;
  const request = {
    method: 'post',
    headers: {
      'Accept': 'application/json',
      'Content-Type': 'application/json',
    body: application
  client.http.postJson(url, request)
  .then(res => {
  .catch(err => {
