transaction_entry

[Source]

The transaction_entry method retrieves information on a single transaction from a specific ledger version. (The tx method, by contrast, searches all ledgers for the specified transaction. We recommend using that method instead.)

Request Format

An example of the request format:

  1. WebSocket
  2. JSON-RPC
  3. Commandline
{
  "id": 4,
  "command": "transaction_entry",
  "tx_hash": "C53ECF838647FA5A4C780377025FEC7999AB4182590510CA461444B207AB74A9",
  "ledger_index": 56865245
}

Try it! >

The request includes the following parameters:

FieldTypeDescription
ledger_hashString(Optional) A 20-byte hex string for the ledger version to use. (See Specifying Ledgers)
ledger_indexString or Unsigned Integer(Optional) The ledger index of the ledger to use, or a shortcut string to choose a ledger automatically. (See Specifying Ledgers)
tx_hashStringUnique hash of the transaction you are looking up

Note: This method does not support retrieving information from the current in-progress ledger. You must specify a ledger version in either ledger_index or ledger_hash.

The response follows the standard format, with a successful result containing the following fields:

FieldTypeDescription
ledger_indexNumber - Ledger IndexThe ledger index of the ledger version the transaction was found in; this is the same as the one from the request.
ledger_hashString - Hash(May be omitted) The identifying hash of the ledger version the transaction was found in; this is the same as the one from the request.
metadataObjectThe transaction metadata, which shows the exact results of the transaction in detail.
tx_jsonObjectJSON representation of the Transaction object

There are a couple possible reasons the server may fail to find the transaction:

  • The transaction does not exist
  • The transaction exists, but not in the specified ledger version
  • The server does not have the specified ledger version available. Another server that has the correct version on hand may have a different response.

Possible Errors

  • Any of the universal error types.
  • fieldNotFoundTransaction - The tx_hash field was omitted from the request
  • notYetImplemented - A ledger version was not specified in the request.
  • lgrNotFound - The ledger specified by the ledger_hash or ledger_index does not exist, or it does exist but the server does not have it.
  • transactionNotFound - The transaction specified in the request could not be found in the specified ledger. (It might be in a different ledger version, or it might not be available at all.)
