This module contains integrated healthchecks for Nest. These healthchecks run in an internal execution manager based on the Terminus-package.


In order to install @nestjs/terminus you must install @godaddy/terminus - the library which will be used to execute the healthchecks.

@nestjs/terminus integrates with a lot of cool technologies, such as typeorm, grpc, mongodb, and many more! In most cases you do not want to install all the optional dependencies which would be needed for these integrations. Therefore we highly recommend to use the --no-optional option. In case you have missed a dependency, @nestjs/terminus will throw an error and prompt you to install the required dependency. So you will only install what is actually required!

npm install --save @nestjs/terminus @godaddy/terminus --no-optional


Import the Terminus module with the following options for a healthcheck with a database health inidcator.

const getTerminusOptions = (
  db: TypeOrmHealthIndicator,
): TerminusModuleOptions => ({
  endpoints: [
      // The health check will be available with /health
      url: '/health',
      // All the indicator which will be checked when requesting /health
      healthIndicators: [
        // Set the timeout for a response to 300ms
        async () => db.pingCheck('database', { timeout: 300 })

    // Make sure TypeOrmModule is available in the module context
    TypeOrmModule.forRoot({ ... }),
      // Inject the TypeOrmHealthIndicator provided by nestjs/terminus
      inject: [TypeOrmHealthIndicator],
      useFactory: db => getTerminusOptions(db),
export class HealthModule { }

If everything is set up correctly, you can access the healthcheck on http://localhost:3000/health.
