Upgrading Smart Contracts
This tutorial covers how to upgrade a smart contract. This procedure will focus
on updating a smart contract for Grid on Splinter run using the Docker compose
file located in
Grid running on Splinter using the example Docker compose file
Access to the scabbard command line tool
An updated smart contract. Instructions for incrementing the protocol version for a contract can be found in the Upgrading Smart Contracts for Developers section.
Rebuild the Smart Contract
This procedure will likely be done by an administrator for the Splinter circuit or network. These steps include rebuilding or compiling the upgraded contract and then deploying it.
If you wish to use the same keys for your agents after upgrading, save each key located in `/root/.grid/keys for each node before proceding.
Rebuild the contract builder container (in this case, for the Pike smart contract) and the Grid daemon containers.
$ docker-compose -f examples/splinter/docker-compose.yaml build \ --no-cache pike-contract-builder gridd-alpha gridd-beta gridd-gamma
Restart those containers:
$ docker-compose -f examples/splinter/docker-compose.yaml up \ --detach pike-contract-builder gridd-alpha gridd-beta gridd-gamma
If not running using the example Docker compose files you will need to package the smart contract. A procedure for this can be found in the Uploading smart contracts section. This will then need to be uploaded via Scabbard.
Add the contract to your circuit
Start a bash session in your node’s
scabbard-cliDocker container (such as
scabbard-cli-alpha). You will use this container to run the
scabbardcommands to upload and configure the smart contract.
$ docker exec -it scabbard-cli-alpha bash root@scabbard-cli-alpha:/#
To simplify entering the
scabbardcommands in this procedure, set
SERVICE_IDto the fully qualified service ID for the scabbard service on this circuit (such as
root@scabbard-cli-alpha:/# export SERVICE_ID=01234-ABCDE::gsAA
Upload the updated contract:
$ scabbard contract upload grid-pike:0.2.2 \ --path ./usr/share/scar \ -k gridd \ -U 'http://splinterd-alpha:8085' \ --service-id $SERVICE_ID
You can verify that the contract was added successfully using the command:
$ scabbard contract list \ -U 'http://splinterd-alpha:8085' \ --service-id $SERVICE_ID
If the address prefix for the contract changes in your update, create a new namespace:
$ scabbard ns create <prefix> \ --owner <alpha_node_public_key> \ --key <path_to_alpha_node_private_key> \ --url http://splinterd-alpha:8080 \ --service-id $CIRCUIT_ID::scabbard-service-alpha
Update the permissions for the namespace:
$ scabbard perm <prefix> my_contract --read --write \ --key <path_to_alpha_node_private_key> \ --url http://splinterd-alpha:8080 \ --service-id $CIRCUIT_ID::scabbard-service-alpha
