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:

{
  "id": 4,
  "command": "transaction_entry",
  "tx_hash": "E08D6E9754025BA2534A78707605E0601F03ACE063687A0CA1BDDACFCD1698C7",
  "ledger_index": 348734
}
{
    "method": "transaction_entry",
    "params": [
        {
            "tx_hash": "E08D6E9754025BA2534A78707605E0601F03ACE063687A0CA1BDDACFCD1698C7",
            "ledger_index": 348734
        }
    ]

#Syntax: transaction_entry transaction_hash ledger_index|ledger_hash

Try it!

The request includes the following parameters:

Field Type Description
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)
tx_hash String Unique 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:

Field Type Description
ledger_index Unsigned Integer Sequence number of the ledger version the transaction was found in; this is the same as the one from the request.
ledger_hash String (May be omitted) Unique hash of the ledger version the transaction was found in; this is the same as the one from the request.
metadata Object Various metadata about the transaction.
tx_json Object JSON 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.)
