I can't verify and check my contract on Etherscan. It asks me for the abi-encoded constructor, but I can't find it. Can someone help me, or tell me how to find the missing information? Please!

  • Are you trying to verify the contract through remix, hardhat, or etherscan directly? Commented Jul 19, 2023 at 5:52
  • hi ,, yes, but I am missing information that I can not find ??? Commented Jul 19, 2023 at 10:16
  • ether scan directly ! Commented Jul 19, 2023 at 11:07
  • The constructor doesn't receive any parameter. If the verifications till fails then it is likely other of the configurations parameters is wrong, or you are using the wrong source code, or the wrong contract address.

There are multiple ways to verify the contracts.

I would recommend using the hardhat etherscan plug-in, it's the simplest.

I assume you are directly verifying via etherscan by copy-pasting the code, then you can use this simple tool to get the encoded values. https://abi.hashex.org/

  • hi , ok thanks , but i need to meter info in auto parse or manual parameters i guess ? and I don't know where to find them? Commented Jul 19, 2023 at 10:20
  • Thanks for your answer but I still can't figure it out!! Commented Aug 20, 2023 at 9:29
  • I saw that there was a problem with the imports of openzepellin and that it was necessary flattened to have the complete dode and submit it to the verify? Commented Aug 20, 2023 at 9:44
  • That's why I said use hardhat, you won't need to do any thing like these. Commented Aug 21, 2023 at 4:34
  • ok thanks, I'm trying to understand Hardat, but it's not easy for a beginner... Commented Aug 21, 2023 at 17:17

If you are using Remix to deploy your contract, you can verify from there directly too. You don't have to worry about manually inputting constructor variables there.

  • Look for plugins in the Remix. There you will find CONTRACT VERIFICATION - ETHERSCAN. Add it to your Remix.
  • Now create an account on Etherscan (or BSCScan, wherever you want to verify). Create an API key for yourself there.
  • Now go to the plugin you just added and paste the API key and other information it asks and hit verify. Your contract will be verified.

  • thx for that , impossible for me to change the selected network and contract name?? Commented Jul 19, 2023 at 11:04
  • The network will be based on the network you are connected to. So choose your preferred network before-hand. Contract name can be selected if your contract has multiple contracts. Commented Jul 19, 2023 at 11:14

  • I saw that there was a problem with the imports of openzepellin and that it was necessary flattened to have the complete dode and submit it to the verify? Commented Aug 20, 2023 at 9:44

If that is the only issue, then when you attempt to verify and it shows the two different versions, the part missing from yours should show in the target bytecode at the end. See if you can copy and paste the missing characters into the field for the encoded constructor.

  • hi, ok thanks, but how did you get to this path and find this info?? Commented Jul 19, 2023 at 10:18
  • The address for your contract, in the explorer you want to verify it with. In the case of the example it is Etherscan. The "info" is the compiled bytecode. Find it in your deployment transaction.
