submit-transaction.js - Submit Chaincode Transaction


How to write a Node.js script to submit a transaction defined in the Invoke method of a chaincode?



Here is sample Node.js script, submit-transaction.js, that uses a given user identity from the local wallet to submit a transaction on chaincode.

/* Copyright (c)
'use strict';
const { FileSystemWallet, Gateway } = require('fabric-network');
const fs = require('fs');
const ccp = JSON.parse(fs.readFileSync("connection.json", 'utf8'));

const user = process.argv[2];
const channel = process.argv[3];
const chaincode = process.argv[4];
const tx = process.argv.slice(5);

async function main() {
   try {

      // Create a new gateway for connecting to our peer node.
      const wallet = new FileSystemWallet("wallet");
      const gateway = new Gateway();
      await gateway.connect(ccp, { wallet, identity: user, discovery: { enabled: false } });

      // Get the network (channel) our contract is deployed to.
      const network = await gateway.getNetwork(channel);

      // Get the contract from the network.
      const contract = network.getContract(chaincode);

      // Submit the specified transaction.
      const result = await contract.submitTransaction(...tx);
      console.log("Tx function and arguments:");
      console.log("Tx result: %s", result);

      // Disconnect from the gateway.
      await gateway.disconnect();

   } catch (error) {
      console.error(`Failed to submit transaction: ${error}`);


To run this application script on your client system, you need finish the last tutorial to register "alice" to, and import the certificate and the key info the local wallet.

Try the script to call the createCar() function of the "fabcar" Invoke() method.

$ node submit-transaction alice mychannel fabcar createCar CAR12 Honda Accord Black Tom
Tx function and arguments:
[ 'createCar', 'CAR12', 'Honda', 'Accord', 'Black', 'Tom' ]
Tx result:

Run evaluate-transaction.js to call the queryCar() function to verify the new asset:

$ node evaluate-transaction alice mychannel fabcar queryCar CAR12
Tx function and arguments:
[ 'queryCar', 'CAR12' ]
Tx result: {"colour":"Black","make":"Honda","model":"Accord","owner":"Tom"}
