Re: Passing an array as argument to chaincode via Node.js SDK #fabric-questions #fabric-chaincode

Hello - 
The 'submitTransaction' function takes and array of parameters. In this case the transaction function has a single parameter, but it's an array. 
So you need to pass a single element array to 'submitTransaction', with the only element being the  ["v1", "v2"]

Subject: [EXTERNAL] [Hyperledger Fabric] Passing an array as argument to chaincode via Node.js SDK #fabric-questions #fabric-chaincode
Date: Thu, Nov 26, 2020 1:04 PM
In the chaincode (in Golang) I have the following function:
func (s *SmartContract) f(ctx contractapi.TransactionContextInterface, arr []string) error { /* function details */ }
When I attempt to call this function via the Node.js SDK,
contract.submitTransaction('f', my_array);
where my_array equals ["v1", "v2"]. I get the following error
message=Error managing parameter param0. Conversion error. Value v1,v2 was not passed in expected format []string
What should be the right way to invoke the chaincode function via the SDK?
