lightning-listsendpays – Low-level command for querying sendpay status


listsendpays [bolt11] [payment_hash]


The listsendpays RPC command gets the status of all sendpay commands (which is also used by the pay command), or with bolt11 or payment_hash limits results to that specific payment. You cannot specify both.

Note that in future there may be more than one concurrent sendpay command per pay, so this command should be used with caution.


On success, an array of objects is returned. Each object contains:

id unique internal value assigned at creation

payment_hash the hash of the payment_preimage which will prove payment.

destination the final destination of the payment.

amount_msat the amount the destination received, in “NNNmsat” format.

created_at the UNIX timestamp showing when this payment was initiated.

status one of complete, failed or pending.

payment_preimage (if status is complete) proves payment was received.

label optional label, if provided to sendpay.

bolt11 the bolt11 argument given to pay (may be missing for pre-0.7 payments).

bolt12 if experimental-offers is enabled, and pay was a given a bolt12 invoice, this field will appear instead of bolt11.
