I want to know the version of a node using API.
I know I can use the CLI to know the version, but can't I use the API?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

You can't do it with cardano-cli but you can just run:

cardano-node --version


cardano-cli --version

without having to stop the node.

  • Thanks for getting back to me! I need to know the version using an API that can be called externally over the network, is there one? (rest, graphql, etc, excluding cli).

    I think you should add a feature request on the cardano-node github repo. Aug 16, 2022 at 1:54
