  3. Allow Workbench to deploy a Consortium blockchain (multi-tenant)

    Have the ability to deploy a real consortium, i.e. multi-tenant blockchain using the workbench. This is already possible for the other blockchain offerings on Azure. See https://feedback.azure.com/forums/586780-blockchain/suggestions/17940262-support-multiple-subscriptions-for-the-blockchain

  6. Workflow and Contract Editting

    Need some place to edit or redeploy the contract and Workflow after doing some changes, if this option is not available we cannot go-ahead and do something and test our existing application.. and come up with new ideas and suggestions, we would be wasting time on creation of new contract every time and keep on getting confused with the already deployed applications.
    Moreover MS can create an UI (drag and drop option) to create a workflow, which is more appropriate at this point of time.

    But before all these please give us and option to edit very urgent

  8. Allow direct access using JSON-RPC to workbench deployed blockchain

    The blockchain deployed by workbench is currently shielded away. It would be good to have direct JSON-RPC access to the blockchain.

  10. Support smart contract functions with return values

    Currently can only expose contract data via instance properties, would be nice to be able to call smart contract functions that have returns values.

  13. Enable setting parity configs flexibly in Ethereum PoA Consortium

    In Ethereum PoA Consortium we can only set parity configs 'gasLimit', 'reseal-max-period' and 'Transaction Permission Contract'.
    In parity, there are many configs.
    Enable all parity configs would be better.
    If not, we especially would like to set configs as below.

    In spec.json file
    ・stepDuration
    →to modify stepDuration

    In CLI options or a config file
    ・logging
    →to controll log outputs

    ・gas-floor-target
    →to maintain gasLimit setting

    ・pruning/no-warp
    →to sync full block when add new nodes

    ・jsonrpc-apis/ws-apis
    → sometimes I want to execute some apis that cannot execute for now(e.g. personal api)

    ・jsonrpc-cors/ws-cors
    →to enhance security

    ・jsonrpc-port/ws-port
    →to modify port

    ・tx-queue-size/tx-queue-per-sender
    →to increase…

  15. Documentation of Ethereum PoA Consortium

    Documentation does not refer to parity configs. (e.g. stepDuration, apis)
    I would like to know how did parity configs be decided.

  17. Ability to view Workflow (json) and Smart Contract (.sol) code for Application

    It would be great if we could use the Blockchain Workbench Client App as an Administrator to be able to view the Workflow configuration json and Smart Contract (.sol) source code. This would help to be able to verify what has been deployed.

  18. Azure Documents on Hyperledger Fabric consortium network

    I was going through below article written on Hyperledger Fabric Consortium Blockchain

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/blockchain/templates/hyperledger-fabric-consortium-blockchain

    I was able to create a network by this article but I am unable to proceed and use it. I tried searching for next steps article on Azure Hyperledger Fabric Consortium Blockchain documents but could not find anything. Do we have any documents where I can proceed with writing smart contracts and execute them on peers and create endorsing and other policies?

    thanks

  20. Ready out of the box Hyperledger fabric network

    The current deployment if Hyperledger Fabric blockchain network is too non-functional to be of any use even for a beginner.
    Please at least include the GO and some sample chaincodes with NodeJS SDK and query scripts for us to start using the network to run some demos promptly.
