  • validate is true if signatures are to be re-verified and blocks and transactions re-validated (optional)

Note: The derived object tables are rolled back and rebuilt by rescanning the existing blockchain. A request to rescan more than 1440 blocks when table trimming is enabled will do a full rescan starting from height 0. Rescan status is saved in the database, so that if a rescan is interrupted or fails it will resume on restart.

  • done (B) is true if the operation completed successfully

  • requestProcessingTime (N) is the API request processing time (in millisec)
