DIDSet Fields

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

FieldJSON TypeInternal TypeRequired?Description
DataStringBlobNoThe public attestations of identity credentials associated with the DID.

URIStringBlobNoThe Universal Resource Identifier associated with the DID.

You must include either Data, DIDDocument, or URI when you submit the DIDSet transaction. If all three fields are missing, the transaction fails.

Note: To delete the Data, DIDDocument, or URI field from an existing DID ledger entry, add the field as an empty string.

Error Cases

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