The ledger_accept method forces the server to close the current-working ledger and move to the next ledger number. This method is intended for testing purposes only, and is only available when the rippled server is running stand-alone mode.

The ledger_accept method is an admin method that cannot be run by unprivileged users!

Request Format

An example of the request format:

   "id": "Accept my ledger!",
   "command": "ledger_accept"

The request accepts no parameters.

Response Format

An example of a successful response:

  "id": "Accept my ledger!",
  "status": "success",
  "type": "response",
  "result": {
    "ledger_current_index": 6643240

The response follows the standard format, with a successful result containing the following field:

ledger_current_indexUnsigned Integer - Ledger IndexLedger index of the newly created 'current' ledger

Note: When you close a ledger, rippled determines the canonical order of transactions in that ledger and replays them. This can change the outcome of transactions that were provisionally applied to the current ledger.

Possible Errors

  • Any of the universal error types.
  • notStandAlone - If the rippled server is not currently running in stand-alone mode.
