Why do my open autopilot channels not match the settings I entered?

This could happen for a few reasons:


  • Your node may still be working on opening channels, which can take a while since it requires an on-chain transaction to open each channel.
  • With autopilot, you can set the max number of channels and value per channel. However, the goal of autopilot is to get your node connected as quickly and effectively as possible, so sometimes it could create channels at lower values than what you’ve set. The Lightning Labs team is actively working to optimize autopilot, so it will only get better and smarter from here.
