(Requires the AMM amendment)

Delete an empty Automated Market Maker (AMM) instance that could not be fully deleted automatically.

Normally, an AMMWithdraw transaction automatically deletes an AMM and all associated ledger entries when it withdraws all the assets from the AMM's pool. However, if there are too many trust lines to the AMM account to remove in one transaction, it may stop before fully removing the AMM. Similarly, an AMMDelete transaction removes up to a maximum of 512 trust lines; it may take several AMMDelete transactions to delete all the trust lines and the associated AMM. In all cases, only the last such transaction deletes the AMM and AccountRoot ledger entries.

AMMDelete Fields

In addition to the common fields, AMMDelete transactions use the following fields:

FieldJSON TypeInternal TypeRequired?Description
AssetObjectSTIssueYesThe definition for one of the assets in the AMM's pool. In JSON, this is an object with currency and issuer fields (omit issuer for XRP).

Error Cases

Besides errors that can occur for all transactions, AMMCreate transactions can result in the following transaction result codes:

Error CodeDescription
tecAMM_NOT_EMPTYThe AMM holds assets in its pools, so it cannot be deleted. If you are one of the AMM's liquidity providers, use AMMWithdraw first.
tecINCOMPLETEThere were too many associated ledger entries to fully delete, so the transaction removed as many as it could, but the AMM has not been fully deleted. You can send another AMMDelete transaction to continue and possibly finish the job.
terNO_AMMThe specified AMM does not exist. (It may have been deleted already, or you may have specified a wrong asset for the AMM you intended.)
