Do thrown errors from Method server-side not work?


I’ve got a server-only method that I’m throwing an error from:

export const addCard = new ValidatedMethod({
  name: 'addCard',

  validate(args) {
    check(args, {
      artistId: String,
      nickname: String,
      token: String,

  run({ artistId, nickname, token }) {
    if (Meteor.isServer) {
      const stripeAddCard = syncStripeFunc('customers', 'createSource');
      const customerId = getCustomerId(artistId || this.userId);

      try {
        return stripeAddCard(customerId, {
          metadata: { nickname },
          source: token,
      } catch (e) {
        console.log('I caught something!', e);
        throw new Meteor.Error('card-auth-failed', e.raw);

And when the user submits an invalid card, on the server I can see an error is dumped to the console, but on the client side, both error and result in the callback are undefined. Is this normal behavior?


If server only, try throwing a regular Error
