I know I can get the public key from cleos for a given account but is the reverse possible? Basically, I am trying to find all the account names associated with a public key.


Yes, it's possible, you can just retrieve all the accounts for a given public key running the command cleos get accounts EOS_PUB_KEY

Another way to check the accounts for a public key, from an external application, is using the EOS RPC Api, check this out: https://developers.eos.io/eosio-nodeos/reference#get_key_accounts-1

  • I was using get account instead of get accounts :)

  • Is there a public domain I can use instead of for xhr.open("POST", ""); ? Dec 13 '18 at 18:45
  • I don't see a function to get all accounts but one could do: keys=`cleos wallet keys | grep -v "[]\[]" | cut -f 2 -d "\""`; for i in $keys; do cleos get accounts $i; done

  • this was working only with a now deprecated plugin for the node (history plugin)
