      • 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

          • 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

                • 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.

                    • Support adding documents to transactions within Workbench

                      More complex user flows often involve documents and users want those document references as part of blockchain transactions.

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

                            • 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.

                                    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.

                                      Hello Brenda,

                                      I am looking for technical assistance and consultation on how to configure the Workbench using a private network, we are trying to set up a sandbox. I
                                      Today it is exposed publicly ( endpoint) .Trowe price has this requirement.
                                      Even if this is not there today, we are looking for a work around. Because this is a SHOW STOPPER.

                                      Attached is the account opportunity for block chain which we are trying to pursue .

                                      Ultimately TRP is looking for no public exposed endpoints. With Azure SQL Db we have a way to limit this access with service endpoints.…
