tef Codes

These codes indicate that the transaction failed and was not included in a ledger, but the transaction could have succeeded in some theoretical ledger. Typically this means that the transaction can no longer succeed in any future ledger. They have numerical values in the range -199 to -100. The exact code for any given error is subject to change, so don't rely on it.

Caution: Transactions with tef codes are not applied to ledgers and cannot cause any changes to the XRP Ledger state. However, a transaction that provisionally failed may still succeed or fail with a different code after being reapplied. For more information, see Finality of Results and Reliable Transaction Submission.

Code Explanation
tefALREADY The same exact transaction has already been applied.
tefBAD_ADD_AUTH DEPRECATED.
tefBAD_AUTH The key used to sign this account is not authorized to modify this account. (It could be authorized if the account had the same key set as the Regular Key.)
tefBAD_AUTH_MASTER The single signature provided to authorize this transaction does not match the master key, but no regular key is associated with this address.
tefBAD_LEDGER While processing the transaction, the ledger was discovered in an unexpected state. If you can reproduce this error, please report an issue to get it fixed.
tefBAD_QUORUM The transaction was multi-signed, but the total weights of all included signatures did not meet the quorum.
tefBAD_SIGNATURE The transaction was multi-signed, but contained a signature for an address not part of a SignerList associated with the sending account.
tefCREATED DEPRECATED.
tefEXCEPTION While processing the transaction, the server entered an unexpected state. This may be caused by unexpected inputs, for example if the binary data for the transaction is grossly malformed. If you can reproduce this error, please report an issue to get it fixed.
tefFAILURE Unspecified failure in applying the transaction.
tefINTERNAL When trying to apply the transaction, the server entered an unexpected state. If you can reproduce this error, please report an issue to get it fixed.
tefINVARIANT_FAILED An invariant check failed when trying to claim the transaction cost. Requires the EnforceInvariants amendment. If you can reproduce this error, please report an issue.
tefMASTER_DISABLED The transaction was signed with the account's master key, but the account has the lsfDisableMaster field set.
tefMAX_LEDGER The transaction included a LastLedgerSequence parameter, but the current ledger's sequence number is already higher than the specified value.
tefNO_AUTH_REQUIRED The TrustSet transaction tried to mark a trustline as authorized, but the lsfRequireAuth flag is not enabled for the corresponding account, so authorization is not necessary.
tefNOT_MULTI_SIGNING The transaction was multi-signed, but the sending account has no SignerList defined.
tefPAST_SEQ The sequence number of the transaction is lower than the current sequence number of the account sending the transaction.
tefWRONG_PRIOR The transaction contained an AccountTxnID field (or the deprecated PreviousTxnID field), but the transaction specified there does not match the account's previous transaction.
