When creating a "full node" using the example given in, I enabled the following plugins:

plugin = webserver p2p json_rpc witness account_by_key tags follow market_history account_history
plugin = database_api account_by_key_api network_broadcast_api tags_api follow_api market_history_api witness_api condenser_api account_history_api

When I query for:

--data '{"jsonrpc":"2.0","id":0,"method":"jsonrpc.get_methods", "params":{}}'

It is missing these two methods:


Is there a plugin missing from the example config?

I noticed this parameter on steemd

  --disable-get-block                   Disable get_block API call

Seems pretty dubious. Perhaps it's there for when the condenser_api is using get_block

When there are missing elements to the fullnode.config.ini or options I want to change, I use STEEMD_EXTRA_OPTS

STEEMD_EXTRA_OPTS="--plugin block_api"



Doesn't solve missing plugins from fullnode.config.ini, but it'll answer your questions and maybe gather more data for the problem.

So here's the situation:

  • The --disable-get-block option disables the get_block call in condenser_api
  • The block_api.* calls are enabled by adding the block_api plugin either via plugin = block_api in the config file, or on the command line via --plugin=block_api
  • When using the Dockerfile, code here adds the block_api plugin to the command line with --plugin=block_api unless the DISABLE_BLOCK_API flag is set.
