tec Codes

These codes indicate that the transaction failed, but it was applied to a ledger to apply the transaction cost. They have numerical values in the range 100 to 199. Ripple recommends using the text code, not the numeric value.

For the most part, transactions with tec codes take no action other than to destroy the XRP paid as a transaction cost, but there are some exceptions. As an exception, a transaction that results in tecOVERSIZE still cleans up some unfunded offers. Always look at the transaction metadata to see precisely what a transaction did.

Caution: A transaction that provisionally failed with a tec code may still succeed or fail with a different code after being reapplied. The result is final when it appears in a validated ledger version. For more information, see Finality of Results and Reliable Transaction Submission.

Code Value Explanation
tecCLAIM 100 Unspecified failure, with transaction cost destroyed.
tecCRYPTOCONDITION_ERROR 146 This EscrowCreate or EscrowFinish transaction contained a malformed or mismatched crypto-condition.
tecDIR_FULL 121 The transaction tried to add an object (such as a trust line, Check, Escrow, or Payment Channel) to an account's owner directory, but that account cannot own any more objects in the ledger.
tecDST_TAG_NEEDED 143 The Payment transaction omitted a destination tag, but the destination account has the lsfRequireDestTag flag enabled. New in: rippled 0.28.0
tecEXPIRED 148 The transaction tried to create an object (such as an Offer or a Check) whose provided Expiration time has already passed.
tecFAILED_PROCESSING 105 An unspecified error occurred when processing the transaction.
tecFROZEN 137 The OfferCreate transaction failed because one or both of the assets involved are subject to a global freeze.
tecINSUF_RESERVE_LINE 122 The transaction failed because the sending account does not have enough XRP to create a new trust line. (See: Reserves) This error occurs when the counterparty already has a trust line in a non-default state to the sending account for the same currency. (See tecNO_LINE_INSUF_RESERVE for the other case.)
tecINSUF_RESERVE_OFFER 123 The transaction failed because the sending account does not have enough XRP to create a new Offer. (See: Reserves)
tecINSUFFICIENT_RESERVE 141 The transaction would increase the reserve requirement higher than the sending account's balance. SignerListSet, PaymentChannelCreate, PaymentChannelFund, and EscrowCreate can return this error code. See SignerLists and Reserves for more information.
tecINTERNAL 144 Unspecified internal error, with transaction cost applied. This error code should not normally be returned. If you can reproduce this error, please report an issue.
tecINVARIANT_FAILED 147 An invariant check failed when trying to execute this transaction. Requires the EnforceInvariants amendment. If you can reproduce this error, please report an issue.
tecNEED_MASTER_KEY 142 This transaction tried to cause changes that require the master key, such as disabling the master key or giving up the ability to freeze balances. New in: rippled 0.28.0
tecNO_ALTERNATIVE_KEY 130 The transaction tried to remove the only available method of authorizing transactions. This could be a SetRegularKey transaction to remove the regular key, a SignerListSet transaction to delete a SignerList, or an AccountSet transaction to disable the master key. (Prior to rippled 0.30.0, this was called tecMASTER_DISABLED.)
tecNO_AUTH 134 The transaction failed because it needs to add a balance on a trust line to an account with the lsfRequireAuth flag enabled, and that trust line has not been authorized. If the trust line does not exist at all, tecNO_LINE occurs instead.
tecNO_DST 124 The account on the receiving end of the transaction does not exist. This includes Payment and TrustSet transaction types. (It could be created if it received enough XRP.)
tecNO_DST_INSUF_XRP 125 The account on the receiving end of the transaction does not exist, and the transaction is not sending enough XRP to create it.
tecNO_ENTRY 140 Reserved for future use.
tecNO_ISSUER 133 The account specified in the issuer field of a currency amount does not exist.
tecNO_LINE 135 The TakerPays field of the OfferCreate transaction specifies an asset whose issuer has lsfRequireAuth enabled, and the account making the offer does not have a trust line for that asset. (Normally, making an offer implicitly creates a trust line if necessary, but in this case it does not bother because you cannot hold the asset without authorization.) If the trust line exists, but is not authorized, tecNO_AUTH occurs instead.
tecNO_LINE_INSUF_RESERVE 126 The transaction failed because the sending account does not have enough XRP to create a new trust line. (See: Reserves) This error occurs when the counterparty does not have a trust line to this account for the same currency. (See tecINSUF_RESERVE_LINE for the other case.)
tecNO_LINE_REDUNDANT 127 The transaction failed because it tried to set a trust line to its default state, but the trust line did not exist.
tecNO_PERMISSION 139 The sender does not have permission to do this operation. For example, the EscrowFinish transaction tried to release a held payment before its FinishAfter time, someone tried to use PaymentChannelFund on a channel the sender does not own, or a Payment tried to deliver funds to an account with the "DepositAuth" flag enabled.
tecNO_REGULAR_KEY 131 The AccountSet transaction tried to disable the master key, but the account does not have another way to authorize transactions. If multi-signing is enabled, this code is deprecated and tecNO_ALTERNATIVE_KEY is used instead.
tecNO_TARGET 138 The transaction referenced an Escrow or PayChannel ledger object that doesn't exist, either because it never existed or it has already been deleted. (For example, another EscrowFinish transaction has already executed the held payment.) Alternatively, the destination account has asfDisallowXRP set so it cannot be the destination of this PaymentChannelCreate or EscrowCreate transaction.
tecOVERSIZE 145 This transaction could not be processed, because the server created an excessively large amount of metadata when it tried to apply the transaction. New in: rippled 0.29.0-hf1
tecOWNERS 132 The transaction requires that account sending it has a nonzero "owners count", so the transaction cannot succeed. For example, an account cannot enable the lsfRequireAuth flag if it has any trust lines or available offers.
tecPATH_DRY 128 The transaction failed because the provided paths did not have enough liquidity to send anything at all. This could mean that the source and destination accounts are not linked by trust lines.
tecPATH_PARTIAL 101 The transaction failed because the provided paths did not have enough liquidity to send the full amount.
tecUNFUNDED 129 The transaction failed because the account does not hold enough XRP to pay the amount in the transaction and satisfy the additional reserve necessary to execute this transaction. (See: Reserves)
tecUNFUNDED_ADD 102 DEPRECATED.
tecUNFUNDED_PAYMENT 104 The transaction failed because the sending account is trying to send more XRP than it holds, not counting the reserve. (See: Reserves)
tecUNFUNDED_OFFER 103 The OfferCreate transaction failed because the account creating the offer does not have any of the TakerGets currency.
