Cloud function - TypeError: require is not a function

This used to work for me until today…

const crypto = require('crypto');
const logger = Moralis.Cloud.getLogger();

Moralis.Cloud.define("saveSellerDataToFile", async (request) => {"saveSellerDataToFile called...");
  const sellerData = request.params.sellerData;
  const dataHash = crypto.createHash('sha256').update(sellerData).digest('hex');
  return {

But today the function fails with…

TypeError: require is not a function

I’ve also tried import but it also does not work.

How to use the default node.js modules like crypto in my cloud functions?

Hey @itheum.

crypto package now available on all cloud functions, just remove this line:

const crypto = require('crypto');

also update/restart the server to apply the updates properly.
