I used the following command to pass a monero transaction with the daemon :


But I need a command whose I can define the source address from which I can send the coin monero.

1 Answer 1


Each account in a wallet has a number, and each subaddress in an account has a number.

You can add the account_index and subaddr_indices options when calling the transfer method to indicate from which subaddress (or subaddresses) the coins will be taken.

For example to use subaddress n°3 in account n°2 as source of the coins:

           "destinations":[{"amount":100000000, "address":"9wNgSYy2F9qPZu7KBjvsFgZLTKE2TZgEpNFbGka9gA5zPmAXS35QzzYaLKJRkYTnzgArGNX7TvSqZC87tBLwtaC5RQgJ8rm"}],

The documentation of the transfer method is here.

  • I already tried with these params but the transaction did not send and this error message is returned : { "error": { "code": -16, "message": "tx not possible" }, "id": "0", "jsonrpc": "2.0" }

  • Have you checked if the source subaddress contains enough funds for the amount sent and the fee? Are there more details about the error in the logs of monero-wallet-rpc?
