ledger_data

[Source]

The ledger_data method retrieves contents of the specified ledger. You can iterate through several calls to retrieve the entire contents of a single ledger version.

Request Format

An example of the request format:

{
   "id": 2,
   "ledger_hash": "842B57C1CC0613299A686D3E9F310EC0422C84D3911E5056389AA7E5808A93C8",
   "command": "ledger_data",
   "limit": 5,
   "binary": true
}
{
    "method": "ledger_data",
    "params": [
        {
            "binary": true,
            "ledger_hash": "842B57C1CC0613299A686D3E9F310EC0422C84D3911E5056389AA7E5808A93C8",
            "limit": 5
        }
    ]
}

Note: There is no commandline syntax for ledger_data. You can use the json method to access this method from the commandline instead.

A request can include the following fields:

Field Type Description
id (Arbitrary) (WebSocket only) Any identifier to separate this request from others in case the responses are delayed or out of order.
ledger_hash String (Optional) A 20-byte hex string for the ledger version to use. (See Specifying Ledgers)
ledger_index String or Unsigned Integer (Optional) The sequence number of the ledger to use, or a shortcut string to choose a ledger automatically. (See Specifying Ledgers)
binary Boolean (Optional, defaults to False) If set to true, return ledger objects as hashed hex strings instead of JSON.
limit Integer (Optional, default varies) Limit the number of ledger objects to retrieve. The server is not required to honor this value.
marker Marker Value from a previous paginated response. Resume retrieving data where that response left off.

The ledger field is deprecated and may be removed without further notice.
