Asset balance for watch-only addresses

0 votes

I'm trying to get the asset balance for a watch only address. I've added the address to an extra account in the wallet. 

I can get the balance for the address in the wallet with getaddressbalances but not for a watch-only address. Maybe I'm doing something wrong but I don't know what. 

Regards, Joost

I've included some command-line info on what I'm trying to do:

"isvalid" : true,

"iscompressed" : true,

Thanks. It sounds like you may have uncovered a simple problem we need to fix. I'll talk to the developers and let you know.

This issue should be fixed in alpha 11 just released, i.e. you should now be able to call getaddressbalances with a watch-only address.
