Receipt Store

The REST API Gateway contains a built-in reliable store for your receipts, once the come back from the node.

Obtaining a receipt

The id from this request can then be used to query the receipt store we provide:

  • /replies?limit=10 returns the last 10 replies received
  • /replies/4696c9f7-2163-4237-7b58-0884fff5fbaf returns the individual receipt

If the request is still queued for delivery to the node, you will receive:

{"error":"Receipt not available"}

Once the transaction is mined, you will receive either a TransactionSuccess or TransactionFailure

Example of an async error

If the transaction could not be submitted to a node in asynchronous mode, then you will still get a receipt. However, that receipt will contain details of the error.

For example:

  "_id": "4696c9f7-2163-4237-7b58-0884fff5fbaf",
  "errorMessage": "Method 'constructor' param 0: Could not be converted to a number",
  "headers": {
    "type": "Error",
    "id": "786492a7-1032-473b-55ee-4dc74d1fa174",
    "requestId": "4696c9f7-2163-4237-7b58-0884fff5fbaf",
    "requestOffset": "u0j6rld2ka-u0uk478rin-requests:0:1",
    "timeElapsed": 0.000349413,
    "timeReceived": "2019-10-05T18:08:28.492341544Z"
  "receivedAt": 1570298908996,
  "requestPayload": "...."

The receipt also contains the full input of the transaction in the requestPayload field, so do you debug or re-submit
