getAccountInfo RPC Method

Returns all information associated with the account of provided Pubkey

Parameters #

string required

Pubkey of account to query, as base-58 encoded string

object optional

Configuration object containing the following fields:

commitment string optional

encoding string optional

Encoding format for Account data

Values: base58base64base64+zstdjsonParsed

  • base58 is slow and limited to less than 129 bytes of Account data.
  • base64 will return base64 encoded data for Account data of any size.
  • base64+zstd compresses the Account data using Zstandard and base64-encodes the result.
  • jsonParsed encoding attempts to use program-specific state parsers to return more human-readable and explicit account state data.
  • If jsonParsed is requested but a parser cannot be found, the field falls back to base64 encoding, detectable when the data field is type string.

dataSlice object optional

Request a slice of the account's data.

  • length: <usize> - number of bytes to return
  • offset: <usize> - byte offset from which to start reading

Data slicing is only available for base58, base64, or base64+zstd encodings.

minContextSlot number optional

The minimum slot that the request can be evaluated at

Result #

The result will be an RpcResponse JSON object with value equal to:

  • <null> - if the requested account doesn't exist
  • <object> - otherwise, a JSON object containing:
    • lamports: <u64> - number of lamports assigned to this account, as a u64
    • owner: <string> - base-58 encoded Pubkey of the program this account has been assigned to
    • data: <[string, encoding]|object> - data associated with the account, either as encoded binary data or JSON format {<program>: <state>} - depending on encoding parameter
    • executable: <bool> - boolean indicating if the account contains a program (and is strictly read-only)
    • rentEpoch: <u64> - the epoch at which this account will next owe rent, as u64
    • size: <u64> - the data size of the account
