The following document lists the commands that the CLI currently supports.


Use --help as a flag on any command for more information.


Call a command on the miden-client like this:

miden-client <command> <sub-command> <--flag>



Create accounts and inspect account details.


Sub-command Description Aliases
list List all accounts monitored by this client -l
show Show details of the account for the specified ID -s
new <ACCOUNT TYPE> Create new account and store it locally -n
import Import accounts from binary files -i

After creating an account with the new command, it is automatically stored and tracked by the client. This means the client can execute transactions that modify the state of accounts and track related changes by synchronizing with the Miden node.


View a summary of the current client state.


View and manage input notes.


Command Description Aliases
list List input notes -l
show Show details of the input note for the specified note ID -s
export Export input note data to a binary file -e
import Import input note data from a binary file -i

The show subcommand also accepts a partial ID instead of the full ID. For example, instead of:

miden-client input-notes show 0x70b7ecba1db44c3aa75e87a3394de95463cc094d7794b706e02a9228342faeb0 

You can call:

miden-client input-notes show 0x70b7ec


Sync the client with the latest state of the Miden network.


View and add tags.


Command Description Aliases
list List all tags monitored by this client -l
add Add a new tag to the list of tags monitored by this client -a

tx or transaction

Execute and view transactions.


Command Description Aliases
list List tracked transactions -l
new <TX TYPE> Execute a transaction, prove and submit it to the node. Once submitted, it gets tracked by the client. -n

After a transaction gets executed, two entities start being tracked:

  • The transaction itself: It follows a lifecycle from pending (initial state) and committed (after the node receives it).
  • Output notes that might have been created as part of the transaction (for example, when executing a pay-to-id transaction).

Types of transaction

Command Explanation
p2id <SENDER ACCOUNT ID> <TARGET ACCOUNT ID> <FAUCET ID> <AMOUNT> Pay-to-id transaction. Sender Account creates a note that a target Account ID can consume. The asset is identifed by the tuple (FAUCET ID, AMOUNT).
mint <TARGET ACCOUNT ID> <FAUCET ID> <AMOUNT> Creates a note that contains a specific amount tokens minted by a faucet, that the target Account ID can consume
consume-notes <ACCOUNT ID> [NOTES] Account ID consumes a list of notes, specified by their Note ID

For consume-notes subcommand, you can also provide a partial ID instead of the full ID for each note. So instead of

miden-client consume-notes <some-account-id> 0x70b7ecba1db44c3aa75e87a3394de95463cc094d7794b706e02a9228342faeb0 0x80b7ecba1db44c3aa75e87a3394de95463cc094d7794b706e02a9228342faeb0

You can do:

miden-client consume-notes <some-account-id> 0x70b7ecb 0x80b7ecb
