Optional referencedTransactionFullHash

referencedTransactionFullHash: string

Using this field allows to make a transaction dependent on other transactions.

Optional senderPrivateKey

senderPrivateKey: string

The senders private key, i.e. the crypto.Keys.signPrivateKey If the private key is not given, then the transaction method will return the unsigned byte string. The transaction won't be processed until the unsigned bytes are being signed and broadcasted using TransactionApi.signAndBroadcastTransaction


senderPublicKey: string

The senders public key, i.e. the crypto.Keys.publicKey

Optional skipAdditionalSecurityCheck

skipAdditionalSecurityCheck: boolean

Setting this option to true, skips the additional security check, i.e. the verification of the unsigned transaction bytes, which detects tampered node responses. By default, the option is false. Usually, you won't use this option, but can be useful when a method cannot be verified, because the verification is not implemented yet.
