Transaction information with zksync-cli

Transaction information with zksync-cli

The npx zksync-cli transaction info command is designed to fetch and display detailed information about a specific transaction. It can be used to check the status, amounts transferred, fees, method signatures, and arguments of transactions on the chain of choice.

Table of contents


You do not need to specify options bellow, you will be prompted to enter them if they are not specified.

  • --tx <transaction hash>: Specify the transaction hash to query.
  • --chain <chain-name>: Select the chain to use (e.g., zksync-mainnet, zksync-sepolia).
  • --rpc <url>: Provide RPC URL instead of selecting a chain
  • --full: Show all available transaction data for comprehensive insights.
  • --raw: Display the raw JSON response from the node.
  • --abi <path>: Path to a local ABI file to decode the transaction's input data.

If no options are provided directly, the CLI will prompt the user to enter the necessary information, such as the chain and transaction hash.

Example usage

Basic usage

npx zksync-cli transaction info

You will be prompted to select a chain and transaction hash.

? Chain to use: zkSync Sepolia Testnet
? Transaction hash: 0x2547ce8219eb7ed5d73e68673b0e4ded83afc732a6c651d43d9dc49bb2f13d40

The command will then display detailed information about the transaction, including its status, from/to addresses, value transferred, method signature with arguments, and more:

Parsing transaction data

By default zksync-cli tries to fetch contract verification data from the server. In case this is not possible it queries the open signatureopen in new window database to get signature of the transaction method. If the method signature is not found, the transaction's data is displayed as a hex string.

Alternatively, you can provide the path to a local ABI file to decode the transaction's input data:

npx zksync-cli transaction info \
  --abi "./Greeter.json"

Viewing detailed information

For an even more detailed overview you can use the --full option:

npx zksync-cli transaction info --full

Displaying raw JSON response

If you prefer to see the raw JSON response from the zkSync node, use the --raw option:

npx zksync-cli transaction info --raw
