Close Inscriptions

The Authority of an inscription can close inscription accounts. This will close all possible accounts associated with the inscription and return the various rent-exempt fees to the owner. Think of close being similar to burn for tokens.

To close the inscription account you have to be a authority. The inscription can not have associated Inscriptions at that point in time.

Here is how you can use our SDKs to close inscription accounts.

Close Inscription Data

import { close, findInscriptionMetadataPda } from '@metaplex-foundation/mpl-inscription';

import { close, findInscriptionMetadataPda } from '@metaplex-foundation/mpl-inscription'

const inscriptionMetadataAccount = await findInscriptionMetadataPda(umi, {
  inscriptionAccount: inscriptionAccount.publicKey,

await close(umi, {
  inscriptionAccount: inscriptionAccount.publicKey,
