ledger_indexNumber - Ledger Index(Omitted if ledger_current_index provided instead) The ledger index of the ledger version that was used when retrieving this data, as requested.
ledger_hashString - Hash(May be omitted) The identifying hash of the ledger version that was used when retrieving this data.
