Re: Fetch all blocks using node sdk #fabric-sdk-node

Madhwendar Thakur

thanks Anup.

Actually we have created an independent client application (Plain HTML and Js based) to show transactions in a meaningful way to end user and showing all these information in Tree Grid once user click on any transaction Id. But here we introduced another html page using which user can query to fetch blocks as per date filter, which is very much slow as there is no direct way of fetching blocks information from ledger as i explained earlier in my previous email.

I already suggested for maintaining off chain database but that will introduce another dependency on using database like postgres or any other no sql supporting rich query platform.

Infact hyperledger explore is also using off chain database.

My question is : isn't it introducing security issues as one can delete data from off chain database? Also this could be an overhead for our clients to manage off chain database as well as another node will be deployed on our clients servers.

So i was looking for a way where we could fetch all blocks using some inbuilt node api's.

Please suggest for the same.

Thanks and regards,

Hello team,

I am having an use-case where i have to show blocks as per date applied by the user. I am using hyper-ledger fabric v2.x with NodeJs sdk.

Currently i am using for loop to fetch each block using QSCC chaincode function GetBlockByNumber, then fetching the date from channel header timestamp and comparing the timestamp with the one sent in the request by user.

This is weird solution to fetch all the required blocks from ledger as per requested time stamp but I did not find any other solution to fetch all the blocks from the ledger.

Could you please suggest a way where i can fetch all the blocks from ledger or any other way which can fetch all blocks quickly?

Your help is much appreciated.

Thanks and Regards,
