Xooa recently released a long-promised feature around endorsing peers and policies. Previously, you were able to create only observing peers outside of the Xooa console. The observing peer allows you to access the blockchain ledger by keeping itself in sync with Xooa.
Whereas, an endorsing peer will be able to endorse the transactions based on the endorsement policy defined for each of the apps. This new feature is available under the External Peers tab on the Xooa console.
For using this feature, it can be broken down in 4 simple steps:
Request URL and Event URL are optional at the time of creating the peer. You can populate these two fields once the peer is deployed on an external platform.
You will be presented with multiple options to set up the endorsing peer on either a popular cloud provider or on-premises.
Follow the setup instructions presented for the corresponding platform you want to set up the peer on.
This step involves establishing a connection between the external endorsing peer you have just set up and Xooa.
Once your peer is successfully tested, you will be able to use this organization while defining endorsing policy.
Xooa provides an industry-first, simplified web-based endorsement policy editor. You can access the editor under the manage tab of any app created on Xooa.
To define the policy:
The app will be upgraded, and the new policy will take effect immediately.
The newly configured external endorsing peer will endorse the transactions according to the endorsing policy defined for the app.
