decoderawtransaction (rawtransactions command)

Bitcoin Core 24.0.1 RPC

decoderawtransaction "hexstring" ( iswitness )

Return a JSON object representing the serialized, hex-encoded transaction.

Arguments

1. hexstring    (string, required) The transaction hex string
2. iswitness    (boolean, optional, default=depends on heuristic tests) Whether the transaction hex is a serialized witness transaction.
                If iswitness is not present, heuristic tests will be used in decoding.
                If true, only witness deserialization will be tried.
                If false, only non-witness deserialization will be tried.
                This boolean should reflect whether the transaction has inputs
                (e.g. fully valid, or on-chain transactions), if known by the caller.
