Are there any examples online for where I can see some examples of deferred transactions being created?

1 Answer 1


It's super simple, from your contract just call the below code:

        transaction out{};
        out.actions.emplace_back(permission_level{_self, N(active)}, N(pet), N(feedpet), std::make_tuple(pet.id));
        out.delay_sec = 10;
        out.send(pet.id, _self);

It's basically wrap an action on a transaction object (so you must import eoslib/transaction.hpp on your header) and you set the quantity of seconds to defer the transaction, in the above case it's 10 seconds.
