Create channels

Last Updated: Feb 23, 2019

Channels are used to isolate the businesses in the blockchain network. One consortium can have multiple channels. Each channel represents a business and has its own ledger. Members in a channel are participants (organizations in a consortium). An organization can join multiple channels.

Create channels

Note: When creating a channel, you need to select the organizations to be added to the channel. Make sure you have created an organization in the consortium. For related operations, see Create consortia , Create organizations , Add organizations to a consortium.

  1. Log on to the Alibaba Cloud BaaS console.

  2. At the bottom of the Overview page, locate the target consortium, and click the name of the consortium.

  3. Click the Channels tab.

  4. Click Add Channel.

  5. Enter the name of the channel.

  6. Select the organizations to join the channel. If the target organization is not found, you need to invite an organization to join the consortium first.

  7. Click Submit.

Once submitted, the system will invite the organization to join the channel and can only add the organization after obtaining consent from the organization.
