Currently I'm using Ganache desktop application for ether transactions and I'm able to view transaction log details in it. But I need to connect it with metamask so that while an ether is transferred, details could be seen account wise. I passed the url and mnemonic.

Account address in metamask were same as it is in ganache desktop application. When ether is transferred, account balance is reduced but no details are shown.

I tried by importing account in metamask using private keys...still the same result...

Help will be greatly appreciated.

  • Please don't post mnemonics, passwords, private keys even on testnet.

If I understand correctly, you want your transactions made in truffle to appear in metamask. This is not possible, though. Metamask only shows transactions made with the application itself.

We also only show transactions sent from metamask right now. We need to make some serious decisions about how we distribute that knowledge if we start adding indexes to the blockchain, like transaction histories.


You have no other choice than to stick with the ganache block explorer in the desktop application.

  • What about viewing transactions logs made in metamask to appear in ganache block explorer? Is that possible?

  • These will appear in Ganache. Ganache represents the blockchain itself so, because you can view details about every single block, you can inspect the transactions as well. Mar 5 '18 at 9:22
