Contract A calls an inline action on contract B via INLINE_ACTION_SENDER(...).

How can contract B determine that it is being called by contract A?

  • That's a good question that I also want to find out, how to see the action sender account_name. Before using INLINE_ACTION_SENDER please check this out: eosio.stackexchange.com/a/320/54 Commented May 18, 2018 at 14:43

    @LeoRibeiro Great pointer! I'm using Dawn 3.0 at the moment but for sure that update for Dawn 4.0 looks solid.

In Dawn 4.0 at least, when A calls B it does so with an authorization that is specific to itself (generally, [email protected]). B can check the authorization.
