Hyperledger: How to test endorsement policy for the business network in multiple organizations?

0 votes

While setting up multiple organisations, committing transactions requires that both organizations should sign off. How can I test that both organizations are endorsing transactions?

Give the proposal responses you are receiving from endorsing peer you can iterate to check validity of the signatures. Look at the example code from Java SDK which handles this:

 * Verifies that a Proposal response is properly signed. The payload is the
 * concatenation of the response payload byte string and the endorsement The
 * certificate (public key) is gotten from the Endorsement.Endorser.IdBytes
 * field
 * @param crypto the CryptoPrimitives instance to be used for signing and
 * verification
 * @return true/false depending on result of signature verification
public boolean verify(CryptoSuite crypto) {

    if (isVerified()) { // check if this proposalResponse was already verified   by client code
        return isVerified();

    if (isInvalid()) {
        this.isVerified = false;

    FabricProposalResponse.Endorsement endorsement = this.proposalResponse.getEndorsement();
    ByteString sig = endorsement.getSignature();

    try {
        Identities.SerializedIdentity endorser = Identities.SerializedIdentity
        ByteString plainText = proposalResponse.getPayload().concat(endorsement.getEndorser());

        if (config.extraLogLevel(10)) {

            if (null != diagnosticFileDumper) {
                StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder(10000);
                sb.append("payload TransactionBuilderbytes in hex: " + DatatypeConverter.printHexBinary(proposalResponse.getPayload().toByteArray()));
                sb.append("endorser bytes in hex: "
                        + DatatypeConverter.printHexBinary(endorsement.getEndorser().toByteArray()));
                sb.append("plainText bytes in hex: " + DatatypeConverter.printHexBinary(plainText.toByteArray()));

                logger.trace("payload TransactionBuilderbytes:  " +


        this.isVerified = crypto.verify(endorser.getIdBytes().toByteArray(), config.getSignatureAlgorithm(),
                sig.toByteArray(), plainText.toByteArray()
    } catch (InvalidProtocolBufferException | CryptoException e) {
        logger.error("verify: Cannot retrieve peer identity from ProposalResponse. Error is: " + e.getMessage(), e);
        this.isVerified = false;

    return this.isVerified;
} // verify
