splinter-circuit-disband — Submits a request to disband the specified circuit.


splinter circuit disband [FLAGS] [OPTIONS] CIRCUIT-ID


Request to disband a circuit by specifying the circuit ID of the circuit to be disbanded. Disbanding a circuit removes a circuit’s networking functionality. Once all members of the circuit have accepted the request to disband the circuit, the circuit is only available offline.

The disband command creates a new circuit proposal to reflect the disbanded state, with the proposed circuit’s circuit_status field set to Disbanded. This proposal is then able to be voted on, similar to other circuit proposals.

The generated ID of the existing circuit can be viewed using the splinter-circuit-list command and this circuit ID is used to specify the circuit to be disbanded. Once the disband request has been submitted, the proposal created (and other circuit proposals) can be viewed using the splinter-circuit-proposals command.

The disband proposal must be accepted by all members before the existing circuit is updated to reflect the disbanded state. If all nodes have agreed to disband the circuit, the disbanded circuit may be viewed using the splinter-circuit-show command.


-h, --help
Prints help information.
-q, --quiet
Decrease verbosity (the opposite of -v). When specified, only errors or warnings will be output.
-V, --version
Prints version information.
Increases verbosity (the opposite of -q). Specify multiple times for more output.


Specifies the full path to the private key file.
-U, --url URL
Specifies the URL for the splinterd REST API. The URL is required unless $SPLINTER_REST_API_URL is set.


Specify the circuit ID of the circuit to be disbanded.


  • The proposed circuit has ID 1234-ABCDE.

The following command displays a member node requesting to disband the circuit:

$ splinter circuit disband \
  --url URL-of-member-node-splinterd-REST-API \
  1234-ABCDE \


URL for the splinterd REST API. (See -U, --url.)
