eth_getTransactionReceipt - Ethereum

Returns the receipt of a transaction by transaction hash.

This can also be used to track the status of a transaction, since the result will be null until the transaction is mined. However, unlike eth_getTransactionByHash , which returns null for unknown transactions, and a non-null response with 3 null fields for a pending transaction, eth_getTransactionReceipt returns null for both pending and unknown transactions.
This call is also commonly used to get the contract address for a contract creation tx.

Note: the receipt is not available for pending transactions.

Object - A transaction receipt object, or null when no receipt was found:

  • transactionHash: DATA, 32 Bytes - hash of the transaction.
  • transactionIndex: QUANTITY - integer of the transactions index position in the block.
  • blockHash: DATA, 32 Bytes - hash of the block where this transaction was in.
  • blockNumber: QUANTITY - block number where this transaction was in.
  • from: DATA, 20 Bytes - address of the sender.
  • to: DATA, 20 Bytes - address of the receiver. null when its a contract creation transaction.
  • cumulativeGasUsed: QUANTITY - The total amount of gas used when this transaction was executed in the block.
  • gasUsed: QUANTITY - The amount of gas used by this specific transaction alone.
  • contractAddress: DATA, 20 Bytes - The contract address created, if the transaction was a contract creation, otherwise null.
  • logs: Array - Array of log objects, which this transaction generated.
  • logsBloom: DATA, 256 Bytes - Bloom filter for light clients to quickly retrieve related logs.

It also returns either:

  • root : DATA 32 bytes of post-transaction stateroot (pre Byzantium)
  • status: QUANTITY either 1 (success) or 0 (failure)
