Adding a new organization in R3 Corda¶
To add a new organization, Corda Doorman/Idman and Networkmap services should already be running. The public certificates from Doorman/Idman and Networkmap should be available and specified in the configuration file.
NOTE: Addition of a new organization has been tested on an existing network which is created by BAF. Networks created using other methods may be suitable but this has not been tested by BAF team.
Create Configuration File¶
Refer this guide for details on editing the configuration file.
network.yaml file should contain the specific
network.organization details along with the network service information about the networkmap and doorman service.
NOTE: Make sure the doorman and networkmap service certificates are in plain text and not encoded in base64 or any other encoding scheme, along with correct paths to them mentioned in network.yaml.
For reference, sample
network.yaml file looks like below (but always check the latest at

The add-new-organization.yaml playbook is used to add a new organization to the existing network. This can be done using the following command
ansible-playbook platforms/shared/configuration/add-new-organization.yaml --extra-vars "@path-to-network.yaml"
NOTE: If you have CorDapps and applications, please deploy them as well.
