How to use it

// Import required libraries and modules from Tatum SDK
import { TatumSDK, Stellar, Network } from "@tatumio/tatum";

// Initialize the Tatum SDK for Stellar
const tatum = await TatumSDK.init<Stellar>({ network: Network.STELLAR });

// Define parameters (Replace placeholders with actual values and remove redundant)
const transactionHash = "YOUR_TRANSACTION_HASH";

// Retrieve a specific transaction by its hash
const transaction = await tatum.rpc.getTransaction(transactionHash);

// Always destroy the Tatum SDK instance when done to stop any background processes
await tatum.destroy();


The getTransaction method allows you to retrieve information about a specific transaction on the Stellar blockchain. You can specify the transaction you want to retrieve by providing its unique transaction hash.

Example use cases:

  1. Transaction Details: Developers and applications can use this method to fetch detailed information about a specific transaction, including its source, destination, amount, and other transaction-specific data.

  2. Transaction Verification: Users can use this method to verify and validate specific transactions on the Stellar network.

  3. Auditing and Reporting: Platform administrators can access transaction data for auditing and reporting purposes.

Request Parameters

The getTransaction method accepts a transactionHash parameter, which is a string representing the unique hash of the transaction you want to retrieve.

  • transactionHash (string, required): The unique hash of the transaction you want to retrieve.

Return Object

The getTransaction method returns detailed information about the specified transaction on the Stellar blockchain. The response includes data such as the transaction ID, source account, destination account, amount, fee, and other transaction-specific details.

(Note: The exact fields in the return object might vary based on the Stellar blockchain's implementation and version.)
