Deploying Document Store Smart Contract

The document store is a smart contract on the Ethereum network that records the issuance and revocation status of OA documents. In this guide, we will deploy a document store smart contract on the Ethereum ropsten network, which is a test network that does not require actual ethers for transactions.

In this guide we will make use of the wallet that we created in the previous step

open-attestation deploy document-store "My first document store" --network ropsten --encrypted-wallet-path wallet.json

You will be prompted for the password that you used while creating the wallet. Once your document store smart contract has been successfully deployed, you will see the success message with the document store address.

In the example above, the document store address is 0xBBb55Bd1D709955241CAaCb327A765e2b6D69c8b, please do NOT use the Transaction ID.

Save the document store address somewhere. You will need this address later to complete the tutorial.
