Client Configuration

This tutorial will not go into details about the options you can adjust within the client configuration settings. Instead, we will provide a broad overview of what is available in Iroha 2.

Check Iroha Configuration Reference for all available options.

Client Configuration (config.json) Example
  "TORII_API_URL": "",
    "name": "alice",
    "domain_id": {
      "name": "wonderland"
    "web_login": "mad_hatter",
    "password": "ilovetea"
  "PUBLIC_KEY": "ed01207233bfc89dcbd68c19fde6ce6158225298ec1131b6a130d1aeb454c1ab5183c0",
    "digest_function": "ed25519",
    "payload": "9ac47abf59b356e0bd7dcbbbb4dec080e302156a48ca907e47cb6aea1d32719e7233bfc89dcbd68c19fde6ce6158225298ec1131b6a130d1aeb454c1ab5183c0"


First, the TORII_API_URL is the same as TORII API_ADDR in the peer configuration. This is the module responsible for handling incoming and outgoing connections. You should also add the prefix http:// or (preferably) https:// to the address.

If you are setting up an Iroha peer, you should also set up a domain for public blockchains. Bare connections[1] are enough for a local private deployment.


The ACCOUNT_ID should be self-explanatory: the only thing you need to worry about is that the account must exist in the blockchain. In the example genesis.json, you can see how we set up the alice@wonderland account.

  1. We're using the HTTP prefix to connect to the Iroha API. An alternative to that is an HTTPS connection, which wraps HTTP in SSL. ↩︎
