The json method is a proxy to running other commands, and accepts the parameters for the command as a JSON value. It is exclusive to the Commandline client, and intended for cases where the commandline syntax for specifying parameters is inadequate or undesirable.

Request Format

An example of the request format:

  1. Commandline
# Syntax: json method json_stanza
rippled -q json ledger_closed '{}'

Response Format

An example of a successful response:

  1. WebSocket
   "result" : {
      "ledger_hash" : "8047C3ECF1FA66326C1E57694F6814A1C32867C04D3D68A851367EE2F89BBEF3",
      "ledger_index" : 390308,
      "status" : "success"

The response follows the standard format, with whichever fields are appropriate to the type of command made.
