SYNOPSIS

listnodes [id]

DESCRIPTION

The listnodes command returns nodes the node has learned about via gossip messages, or a single one if the node id was specified.

EXAMPLE JSON REQUEST

{
  "id": 82,
  "method": "listnodes",
  "params": {
    "id": "02e29856dab8ddd9044c18486e4cab79ec717b490447af2d4831e290e48d57638a"
  }
}

RETURN VALUE

On success, an object containing nodes is returned. It is an array of objects, where each object contains:

  • nodeid (pubkey): the public key of the node
  • last_timestamp (u32, optional): A node_announcement has been received for this node (UNIX timestamp)

If last_timestamp is present:

  • alias (string): The fun alias this node advertized (up to 32 characters)
  • color (hex): The favorite RGB color this node advertized (always 6 characters)
  • features (hex): BOLT #9 features bitmap this node advertized
  • addresses (array of objects): The addresses this node advertized:
    • type (string): Type of connection (one of “ipv4”, “ipv6”, “torv2”, “torv3”)
    • address (string): address in expected format for type
    • port (u16): port number

If option_will_fund is present:

  • option_will_fund (object):
    • lease_fee_base_msat (msat): the fixed fee for a lease (whole number of satoshis)
    • lease_fee_basis (u32): the proportional fee in basis points (parts per 10,000) for a lease
    • funding_weight (u32): the onchain weight you’ll have to pay for a lease
    • channel_fee_max_base_msat (msat): the maximum base routing fee this node will charge during the lease
    • channel_fee_max_proportional_thousandths (u32): the maximum proportional routing fee this node will charge during the lease (in thousandths, not millionths like channel_update)
    • compact_lease (hex): the lease as represented in the node_announcement

On failure, one of the following error codes may be returned:

  • -32602: Error in given parameters.
