Sign inputs for raw transaction (serialized, hex-encoded).

The second argument is an array of base58-encoded private keys that will be the only keys used to sign the transaction.

The third optional argument (may be null) is an array of previous transaction outputs that this transaction depends on but may not yet be in the block chain.

Argument #1 - hexstring

Type: string, required

The transaction hex string

Argument #2 - privkeys

Type: json array, required

A json array of base58-encoded private keys for signing

[
  "privatekey",                (string) private key in base58-encoding
  ...
]

Argument #3 - prevtxs

Type: json array, optional

A json array of previous dependent transaction outputs

[
  {                            (json object)
    "txid": "hex",             (string, required) The transaction id
    "vout": n,                 (numeric, required) The output number
    "scriptPubKey": "hex",     (string, required) script key
    "redeemScript": "hex",     (string) (required for P2SH) redeem script
    "witnessScript": "hex",    (string) (required for P2WSH or P2SH-P2WSH) witness script
    "amount": amount,          (numeric or string, required) The amount spent
  },
  ...
]

Argument #4 - sighashtype

Type: string, optional, default=ALL

The signature hash type. Must be one of:
“ALL” “NONE” “SINGLE” “ALL|ANYONECANPAY” “NONE|ANYONECANPAY” “SINGLE|ANYONECANPAY”

Result

{
  "hex" : "value",                  (string) The hex-encoded raw transaction with signature(s)
  "complete" : true|false,          (boolean) If the transaction has a complete set of signatures
  "errors" : [                      (json array of objects) Script verification errors (if there are any)
    {
      "txid" : "hash",              (string) The hash of the referenced, previous transaction
      "vout" : n,                   (numeric) The index of the output to spent and used as input
      "scriptSig" : "hex",          (string) The hex-encoded signature script
      "sequence" : n,               (numeric) Script sequence number
      "error" : "text"              (string) Verification or signing error related to the input
