lightning-disableinvoicerequest – Command for removing an invoice request


(WARNING: experimental-offers only)

disableinvoicerequest invreq_id


The disableinvoicerequest RPC command disables an invoice_request, so that no further invoices will be accepted (and thus, no further payments made)..

We currently don’t support deletion of invoice_requests, so they are not forgotten entirely (there may be payments which refer to this invoice_request).


Note: the returned object is the same format as listinvoicerequest.

On success, an object is returned, containing:

  • invreq_id (hash): the SHA256 hash of all invoice_request fields less than 160
  • active (boolean): whether the invoice_request is currently active (always false)
  • single_use (boolean): whether the invoice_request will become inactive after we pay an invoice for it
  • bolt12 (string): the bolt12 string starting with lnr
  • used (boolean): whether the invoice_request has already been used
  • label (string, optional): the label provided when creating the invoice_request
