I created a transaction using createrawtransaction spending a UTXO that I own the keys to and then converted it to PSBT using converttopsbt, then I used walletprocesspsbt and finalizepsbt. After finalizepsbt, my "complete" value is false.

Is there a way to get more details on why it's not considered completed?

Thanks, Francois

    Have you tried using analyzepsbt to see what it thinks the next step is? You could also use decodepsbt to inspect it and see if there is anything missing.

    @Andrewchow: given that Francois was asking how to figure out more details, I think your comment would be a great answer.

  • Hi Pieter, Andrew, Murch, I had a weird bug where after importing a private key into my wallet, when doing the walletprocesspsbt, it did not sign my psbt transaction. I reloaded the wallet and was able to successfully sign the transaction. Are the wallet private keys cached on load? It's also possible that I was the problem :). The analyzepsbt gave me the clue to investigate my issue. Thanks for the help guys!

To get more details about the next steps for a PSBT, you can use the analyzepsbt RPC. Additionally, decodepsbt will tell you what information is in a PSBT so you can use that to inspect the PSBT to learn what is missing.
