How to Use JavaScript's `Promise.allSettled()` Function

Oct 19, 2021

Promise.allSettled() is similar to Promise.all() with two key differences:

Recall that a promise is a state machine with 3 states:

  1. Pending The operation is in progress.
  2. Fulfilled The operation completed successfully.
  3. Rejected The operation experienced an error.

"Settled" means the promise is either fulfilled or rejected, so you can think of allSettled() as waiting for all the promises in the array to become settled.

Return Value

allSettled() will contain an array of objects that contain either {status: 'fulfilled', value} if the promise was fulfilled or {status: 'rejected', reason} if the promise was rejected.

// [{ status: "fulfilled", value: "Hello World" }, { status: "rejected", reason: "fail" }]
const res = await Promise.allSettled([Promise.resolve('Hello World'), Promise.reject('fail')]);

To check if any promise was rejected, you can use the Array#find() function:

res.find(({ status }) => status === 'rejected');

Browser Support

allSettled() is not supported in Internet Explorer and Node.js versions below 12.9. However, you can use Promise.all() for environments that do not support allSettled() as shown below:

function allSettled(promises) {
  const _promises = => {
    return p.
      then(value => ({ status: 'fulfilled', value })).
      catch(reason => ({ status: 'rejected', reason });
  return Promise.all(_promises);
