Retrieve an identity#

In this tutorial we will retrieve the identity created in the Register an Identity tutorial.



const Dash = require('dash');

const client = new Dash.Client({ network: 'testnet' });

const retrieveIdentity = async () => {
  return client.platform.identities.get('an identity ID goes here');

  .then((d) => console.log('Identity retrieved:\n', d.toJSON()))
  .catch((e) => console.error('Something went wrong:\n', e))
  .finally(() => client.disconnect());

Example Identity#

The following example response shows a retrieved identity:


What’s Happening#

After we initialize the Client, we request an identity. The platform.identities.get method takes a single argument: an identity ID. After the identity is retrieved, it is displayed on the console.
