Before History

A frontier server may be configured to only keep a portion of the DigitalBits network’s history stored within its database. This error will be returned when a client requests a piece of information (such as a page of transactions or a single operation) that the server can positively identify as falling outside the range of recorded history.


As with all errors Frontier returns, before_history 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
