GDAX Heartbeat Channel: Failed to subscribe error

0 votes

I'm looking at the documentation on Coinbase's Github for the GDAX API and trying to subscribe to the heartbeat channel, this is the code:

var websocket = new Gdax.WebsocketClient(
        key: API_KEY,
        secret: API_SECRET,
        passphrase: API_PASSPHRASE,
    { heartbeat: true }
  webSocket.on('message', data => {

I get this Error:

    type: 'error',
    message: 'Failed to subscribe',
    reason: 'You need to specify at least one product ID for channel heartbeat'

Try this, it should work.

    "type": "subscriptions",
    "channels": [        
            "name": "heartbeat",
            "product_ids": [
