The Hyperledger Fabric Endorsement policy is configured when the chaincode is instantiated. The Endorsement policies are configured as logical gate predicates. The rule for this logic gate is as follows:

EXPR(E[, E...]) where EXPR is AND or OR and E is either a principal (Org1.Admin, Org1.Member) or a nested expression EXPR(..)


"AND('Org1.member', 'Org2.member')"

When you execute

peer instantiate chaincodeName

you have to pass

-P policyString

where policyString is the expression shown as in the above example


peer chaincode instantiate -C testchainid -n mycc -p -c '{"Args":["init","a","100","b","200"]}' -P "AND('Org1.member', 'Org2.member')"

What the logic 

-P "AND('Org1.member', 'Org2.member')"

in your code mean?

Hi @Shri, it means that both Org1 and Org2 members are requested to sign the transaction.
Hi. I want to write a logic for the following case. I have two Organizations Org1 and Org2. I want either one of them to sign the transaction i.e., it is not necessary that both should sign the transaction. What is the logic for this?

You can use the OR gate for this. Refer the below logic.

-P "AND('Org1.member', 'Org2.member')"

You can also use nested logic. Suppose you want to request one signature from a member of the Org1 MSP or 1 signature from a member of the Org2 MSP and 1 signature from a member of the Org3 MSP. Then you can use the following logic:

OR('Org1.member', AND('Org2.member', 'Org3.member'))

Endorsement policy can be set by using the -P switch. When instantiating the chaincode, use the -switch following by a Boolean logic representing which peer or organization has to sign the transaction. 

$ peer chaincode instantiate <other parameters> -P <boolean logic>
