Transaction Malformed

Transaction Malformed

When you submit a malformed transaction to Aurora , Aurora will return a transaction_malformed error. There are many ways in which a transaction is malformed, including

  • you submitted an empty string
  • your base64-encoded string is invalid
  • your XDR structure is invalid
  • you have leftover bytes in your XDR structure

If you are encountering this error, please check the contents of the transaction you are submitting. This error is similar to the Bad Request error response and, therefore, the HTTP 400 Error.


As with all errors Aurora returns, transaction_malformed follows the Problem Details for HTTP APIs draft specification guide and thus has the following attributes:

Attribute Type Description
Type URL The identifier for the error. This is a URL that can be visited in the browser.
Title string A short title describing the error.
Status Number An HTTP status code that maps to the error.
Detail string A more detailed description of the error.
Instance string A token that uniquely identifies this request. Allows server administrators to correlate a client report with server log files.

In addition, the following additional data is provided in the extras field of the error:

Attribute Type Description
envelope_xdr String The submitted data that was malformed in some way.
