Admin RPC

TestNet Admin RPC Methods

You can fully control your TestNet by using special RPC methods. These methods are made available through the Admin RPC, which you can copy from the Dashboard.

They allow you to manipulate the network state such as account balances, block numbers, and storage to accommodate your development needs.

Calls to these RPC methods are represented by a call to virtual TenderlyCheatcodes contract.

The list of special RPC methods listed here will only work if they are called through the Admin RPC.

Network customization

Send transaction

Unlimited faucet

Storage manipulation

State revert

evm_increaseTime

Jumps forward in time and generates a block with that timestamp.

Parameters

  • QUANTITY - integer or hex-encoded number of seconds to jump forward by

Returns

  • DATA - 32-byte block hash of the newly generated block

Example request

example.json

  "jsonrpc": "2.0",
  "method": "evm_increaseTime",

evm_setNextBlockTimestamp

This method works like evm_increaseTime but instead of increasing time for specific amount of seconds, it sets the timestamp in the future.
