I am using testrpc. While running truffle migrate I get the following error:

        throw new Error(this.contract_name + " has no network configuration for its current network id (" + network_id + ").");

Error: XXXTokenFactory has no network configuration for its current network id (1497979617513).

My truffle.js as the following content

// Allows us to use ES6 in our migrations and tests.

module.exports = {
  networks: {
    development: {
      host: 'localhost',
      port: 8545,
      network_id: '*' // Match any network id

What am I missing? Would appreciate any help I get. Thanks

  • did you define your contract in migrations/2_deploy_contracts.js file?

  • Yes I did. Forgot to mention my XXXTokenFactory is an implementation of Open Zeppelin's MultisigWallet Commented Jun 21, 2017 at 4:07

This seems to occur if you're trying to deploy contract A that depends on contract B before contract B has actually finished deploying.

You probably have something like this:

module.exports = function(deployer, network, accounts) {
  deployer.deploy(A, B.address);

It's essentially a race condition because B.address is probably not ready in time for the second deployer.deploy call. So use the promise that deploy returns like this:

module.exports = function(deployer, network, accounts) {
  deployer.deploy(B).then(function() {
    return deployer.deploy(A, B.address);

    This solution didn't work for me. keep getting the same error.

    Same for me until I noticed the return statement. After adding that, it worked. Commented Dec 5, 2019 at 13:03

I prefer this syntax:

module.exports = function(deployer, network, accounts) {

    deployer.then(async () => {
        await deployer.deploy(A);
        await deployer.deploy(B, A.address);

since it's way more readable when you have lots of contracts.
