Advanced Trade API account data: active, ready

I’m confused by these two booleans in my account data:
active - Whether or not this account is active and okay to use.
ready - Whether or not this account is ready to trade.

I’ve never seen these two values be false but I’m wondering what exactly these two fields mean and how should I handle any of them being false.

I assume when ready is false, I would not be allowed to trade, but the active field description is very vague: what does it mean that “it’s okay to use”?

Thanks for the help!

Hi @bkiac

Welcome to the Coinbase Cloud forum! Apologies for the delay on the response.

Active - Whether or not this account is active and okay to use. An account might be active but may have trading restrictions for certain trading pairs from time to time. Also, ready - Whether or not this account is ready to trade refers to the trading ability of the account without any restrictions. An account may be active but may not be able to trade. False signals the restriction on the account or in terms of trading. We hope this helps.
