Get Contract ABI for Verified Contract Source Codes


A simple sample for retrieving the contractABI using Web3.js and Jquery to interact with a contract

   var Web3 = require('web3');
    var web3 = new Web3(new Web3.providers.HttpProvider());
    var version = web3.version.api;
    $.getJSON('https://api.polygonscan.com/api?module=contract&action=getabi&address=0x0000000000000000000000000000000000001010&apikey=YourApiKeyToken', function (data) {
    var contractABI = "";
        contractABI = JSON.parse(data.result);
        if (contractABI != ''){
            var MyContract = web3.eth.contract(contractABI);
            var myContractInstance = MyContract.at("0x0000000000000000000000000000000000001010");
            var result = myContractInstance.memberId("0xfe8ad7dd2f564a877cc23feea6c0a9cc2e783715");
            console.log("result1 : " + result);
            var result = myContractInstance.members(1);
            console.log("result2 : " + result);
        } else {
            console.log("Error" );

Get Contract Source Code for Verified Contract Source Codes

1. https://api.polygonscan.com/api?module=contract&action=getsourcecode&address=0x2791bca1f2de4661ed88a30c99a7a9449aa84174&apikey=YourApiKeyToken (replace the address parameter with the actual contract address)

2. Terms of usage: Please see the usage terms policy

Verify source code (Beta)

1. Requires a valid PolygonScan APIkey, will reject if otherwise
2. Current daily limit of 100 submissions per day per user (subject to change)
3. Only supports HTTP post due to max transfer size limitations for http get
4. Supports up to 10 different library pairs
5. Contracts that use "imports" will need to have the code concatenated into one file as we do not support "imports" in separate files. You can try using the Blockcat solidity-flattener or SolidityFlattery
6. List of supported solc versions, only solc version v0.4.11 and above is supported. Ex. v0.4.25+commit.59dbf8f1
7. Upon successful submission you will receive a GUID (50 characters) as a receipt.
8. You may use this GUID to track the status of your submission
9. Verified Source Codes will be displayed at contractsVerified

See Demo Source Verification Submission Code at Source Code Verification Sample
