Getting the account information

Get the public key and balance of an account.

Prerequisites

Method #01: Using the SDK

Open a new file and call the getAccountInfo function from the AccountHttp repository. Pass your account’s address as a parameter.

// replace with address
const rawAddress = 'TB6Q5E-YACWBP-CXKGIL-I6XWCH-DRFLTB-KUK34I-YJQ';
const address = Address.createFromRawAddress(rawAddress);
// replace with node endpoint
const nodeUrl = 'http://api-01.us-east-1.096x.symboldev.network:3000';
const repositoryFactory = new RepositoryFactoryHttp(nodeUrl);
const accountHttp = repositoryFactory.createAccountRepository();

accountHttp
    .getAccountInfo(address)
    .subscribe((accountInfo) => console.log(accountInfo),
        (err) => console.error(err));
// replace with address
const rawAddress = 'TB6Q5E-YACWBP-CXKGIL-I6XWCH-DRFLTB-KUK34I-YJQ';
const address = symbol_sdk_1.Address.createFromRawAddress(rawAddress);
// replace with node endpoint
const nodeUrl = 'http://api-01.us-east-1.096x.symboldev.network:3000';
const repositoryFactory = new symbol_sdk_1.RepositoryFactoryHttp(nodeUrl);
const accountHttp = repositoryFactory.createAccountRepository();
accountHttp
    .getAccountInfo(address)
    .subscribe((accountInfo) => console.log(accountInfo), (err) => console.error(err));
        // replace with node endpoint
        try (final RepositoryFactory repositoryFactory = new RepositoryFactoryVertxImpl(
            "http://api-01.us-east-1.096x.symboldev.network:3000")) {
            final AccountRepository accountRepository = repositoryFactory
                .createAccountRepository();

            // Replace with an address
            final String rawAddress = "TB6Q5E-YACWBP-CXKGIL-I6XWCH-DRFLTB-KUK34I-YJQ";
            final Address address = Address.createFromRawAddress(rawAddress);
            final AccountInfo accountInfo = accountRepository
                .getAccountInfo(address).toFuture().get();
            final JsonHelper helper = new JsonHelperJackson2();
            System.out.println(helper.prettyPrint(accountInfo));
        }

Method #02: Using the CLI

Open a terminal window and run the following command.

Replace TCHBDE-NCLKEB-ILBPWP-3JPB2X-NY64OE-7PYHHE-32I with the address you want to query.

symbol-cli account info --address TCHBDE-NCLKEB-ILBPWP-3JPB2X-NY64OE-7PYHHE-32I
