Commands and Config Options

The XDC client software runs as a containerized application in Docker. This ensures a standardized and efficient environment for running XDC nodes. Let's start by examining this client software.
To obtain a comprehensive list of available commands and options, we can use the following command with the XDC Client:
sudo docker exec -it mainnet_xinfinnetwork_1 XDC --help
By executing this command, we gain access to the XDC client within the Docker container named mainnet_xinfinnetwork_1. The inclusion of the --help flag prompts the client to display its usage information, presenting an extensive list of commands and their respective options. The first page of output is shown here:
XDC Client Commands and Configuration Options
From the output, we can observe that the appropriate formatting for commands and options within the XDC client's Docker container is as follows:
XDC [options] command [command options] [arguments...]
By adhering to this structure, we can pass commands and options to Docker when running within the container. Consequently, the appropriate command structure from our external command line also becomes clear:
sudo docker exec -it mainnet_xinfinnetwork_1 XDC [options] command [command options] [arguments...]
Now, let's proceed to explore each command and option individually, based on the output obtained when using the --help flag.

COMMANDS

account

Manage accounts, list all existing accounts, import a private key into a new account, create a new account or update an existing account.
It supports interactive mode, when you are prompted for password as well as non-interactive mode where passwords are supplied via a given password file. Non-interactive mode is only meant for scripted use on test networks or known safe environments.
Make sure you remember the password you gave when creating a new account (with either new or import). Without it you are not able to unlock your account.
Note that exporting your key in unencrypted format is NOT supported.
Keys are stored under /keystore.
It is safe to transfer the entire directory or the individual keys therein between XDC nodes by simply copying.
Make sure you backup your keys regularly.

USAGE:

XDC account command [command options] [arguments...]

account COMMANDS:

list [command options] [arguments...]

XDC account list
Print a short summary of all accounts
XDPoSChain OPTIONS:
  • --datadir "/root/.XDC" Data directory for the databases and keystore
  • --keystore Directory for the keystore (default = inside the datadir)

new [command options] [arguments...]

XDC account new
Creates a new account and prints the address.
The account is saved in encrypted format, you are prompted for a passphrase.
You must remember this passphrase to unlock your account in the future.
For non-interactive use the passphrase can be specified with the --password flag.
Note, this is meant to be used for testing only, it is a bad idea to save your password to file or expose in any other way.
XDPoSChain OPTIONS:
  • --datadir "/root/.XDC" Data directory for the databases and keystore
  • --keystore Directory for the keystore (default = inside the datadir)
ACCOUNT OPTIONS:
  • --password value Password file to use for non-interactive password input
MISC OPTIONS:
  • --lightkdf Reduce key-derivation RAM & CPU usage at some expense of KDF strength

update [command options] [arguments...]

XDC account update [options] <address>
Update an existing account.
The account is saved in the newest version in encrypted format, you are prompted for a passphrase to unlock the account and another to save the updated file.
This same command can therefore be used to migrate an account of a deprecated format to the newest format or change the password for an account.
For non-interactive use the passphrase can be specified with the --password flag.
Since only one password can be given, only format update can be performed, changing your password is only possible interactively.
XDPoSChain OPTIONS:
  • --datadir "/root/.XDC" Data directory for the databases and keystore
  • --keystore Directory for the keystore (default = inside the datadir)
MISC OPTIONS:
  • --lightkdf Reduce key-derivation RAM & CPU usage at some expense of KDF strength

import [command options] [arguments...]

XDC account import [options] <keyfile>
Imports an unencrypted private key from and creates a new account. Prints the address.
The keyfile is assumed to contain an unencrypted private key in hexadecimal format.
The account is saved in encrypted format, you are prompted for a passphrase.
You must remember this passphrase to unlock your account in the future.
For non-interactive use the passphrase can be specified with the --password flag
Note: As you can directly copy your encrypted accounts to another XDC instance, this import mechanism is not needed when you transfer an account between nodes.
XDPoSChain OPTIONS:
  • --datadir "/root/.XDC" Data directory for the databases and keystore
  • --keystore Directory for the keystore (default = inside the datadir)
ACCOUNT OPTIONS:
  • --password value Password file to use for non-interactive password input
MISC OPTIONS:
  • --lightkdf Reduce key-derivation RAM & CPU usage at some expense of KDF strength
