The response follows the standard format, with the result containing the requested account, its data, and a ledger to which it applies, as the following fields:

Field Type Description
account_data Object The AccountRoot ledger object with this account's information, as stored in the ledger.
signer_lists Array (Omitted unless the request specified signer_lists and at least one SignerList is associated with the account.) Array of SignerList ledger objects associated with this account for Multi-Signing. Since an account can own at most one SignerList, this array must have exactly one member if it is present. New in: rippled 0.31.0
ledger_current_index Integer (Omitted if ledger_index is provided instead) The sequence number of the most-current ledger, which was used when retrieving this information. The information does not contain any changes from ledgers newer than this one.
ledger_index Integer (Omitted if ledger_current_index is provided instead) The sequence number of the ledger used when retrieving this information. The information does not contain any changes from ledgers newer than this one.
queue_data Object (Omitted unless queue specified as true and querying the current open ledger.) Information about queued transactions sent by this account. This information describes the state of the local rippled server, which may be different from other servers in the consensus network. Some fields may be omitted because the values are calculated "lazily" by the queuing mechanism.
validated Boolean True if this data is from a validated ledger version; if omitted or set to false, this data is not final. New in: rippled 0.26.0

The queue_data parameter, if present, contains the following fields:

Field Type Description
txn_count Integer Number of queued transactions from this address.
auth_change_queued Boolean (May be omitted) Whether a transaction in the queue changes this address's ways of authorizing transactions. If true, this address can queue no further transactions until that transaction has been executed or dropped from the queue.
lowest_sequence Integer (May be omitted) The lowest Sequence Number among transactions queued by this address.
highest_sequence Integer (May be omitted) The highest Sequence Number among transactions queued by this address.
max_spend_drops_total String (May be omitted) Integer amount of drops of XRP that could be debited from this address if every transaction in the queue consumes the maximum amount of XRP possible.
transactions Array (May be omitted) Information about each queued transaction from this address.

Each object in the transactions array, if present, may contain any or all of the following fields:

Field Type Description
auth_change Boolean Whether this transaction changes this address's ways of authorizing transactions.
fee String The Transaction Cost of this transaction, in drops of XRP.
fee_level String The transaction cost of this transaction, relative to the minimum cost for this type of transaction, in fee levels.
max_spend_drops String The maximum amount of XRP, in drops, this transaction could send or destroy.
seq Integer The Sequence Number of this transaction.

Possible Errors

  • Any of the universal error types.
  • invalidParams - One or more fields are specified incorrectly, or one or more required fields are missing. For example, the request specified queue as true but specified a ledger_index that is not the current open ledger.
  • actNotFound - The address specified in the account field of the request does not correspond to an account in the ledger.
  • lgrNotFound - The ledger specified by the ledger_hash or ledger_index does not exist, or it does exist but the server does not have it.
