The minimum number of confirmations an externally-generated transaction must have before it is counted towards the balance. Transactions generated by this node are counted immediately.

Name Type Presence Description
Include Watch Only bool Optional
(0 or 1)
If set to true, include watch-only addresses in details and calculations as if they were regular addresses belonging to the wallet. If set to false (the default), treat watch-only addresses as if they didn’t belong to this wallet

Result—a list of accounts and their balances

Name Type Presence Description
result object Required
(exactly 1)
A JSON array containing key/value pairs with account names and values. Must include, at the very least, the default account ("")

Account : Balance
string : number (pai’) Required
