How Do I Use the JSON RPC API?

+1 vote

Hi,

I'm trying to figure out how to use the RPC API and have a few questions:

  1. How do I create an RPC user/password?
  2. Is there a documentation web page?
  3. How do I know which port to use?

Thanks in advance for your help.

The RPC user and password are generated automatically when you start the chain, and are in the multichain.conf file in the blockchain's directory.

Unless you specify otherwise, the port will be the default-rpc-port from the blockchain parameters.

The API and methods of access are documented in detail here:
