I am trying to work with the add_address_bookfunction https://getmonero.org/resources/developer-guides/wallet-rpc.html#add_address_book

I have noticed that I can add and get the addresses, but when I close the wallet and daemon and then reopen them, the address book is emtpy.

has anyone ran into this issue?

  • Are you really sure you saved the wallet ?

  • To add, are you running monero-wallet-cli and monero-wallet-rpc concurrently with the same wallet?

Okay, so I found the problem. It was because when I close the wallet, I need to issue the stop wallet command before I close the wallet, otherwise the cache is not saved. https://getmonero.org/resources/developer-guides/wallet-rpc.html#stop_wallet
