Before History  [Go SDK]

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.

This error returns a HTTP 410 Error.
