Private Key Of A New Address

+2 votes

generated a new address using "getnewaddress" api command.

issued some assets to that newly created address.

now when I try to see it's private key using "dumpprivkey" command, it says:

Private key for address <newly generated address> is not known

is there a way to generate private key for it ?

Are you running dumpprivkey on the same node that you ran getnewaddress on? Each node stores its private keys separately and they are not shared over the chain (by design!)
