Been running a node, and I notice the payment in configuration settings is not editable, how do I figure that out, also am not seeing the Oracle balance in link increase and it debiting the user using the node.

The default minimum LINK payment on a Chainlink node can be set with the MINIMUM_CONTRACT_PAYMENT_LINK_JUELS environment variable.

E.g. in your .env file:


Additionally, you can override this amount in your job specs.

E.g. in your job spec:

minPayment = 1000000000000000000

The amount is set in the lowest unit of LINK (which has 18 decimals). That means 1e18 = 1 LINK. To represent 0.1 LINK, you would set the value with 17 zeros, etc.
