lightning-recoverchannel – Command for recovering channels bundeled in an array in the form of Static Backup¶
The recoverchannel RPC command tries to force the peer (with whom you already had a channel) to close the channel and sweeps on-chain fund. This method is not spontaneous and depends on the peer, so use it in case of severe data loss.
The scb parameter is an array containing minimum required info to reconnect and sweep funds. You can get the scb for already stored channels by using the RPC command ‘staticbackup’
On success, an object is returned, containing:
- stubs (array of hexs):
- Each item is the channel ID of the channel successfully inserted
