How to Report an Issue

To report issues, log into jira.hyperledger.org, which requires a Linux Foundation Account.

Create issues in JIRA under the Hyperledger Sawtooth project, which uses the STL JIRA key.

When reporting an issue, please provide as much detail as possible about how to reproduce it. If possible, explain how to reproduce the issue. Details are very helpful. Please include the following information:

  • OS version
  • Sawtooth version
  • Environment details (virtual, physical, etc.)

If you would like, you could also describe the issue on RocketChat (see Joining the Discussion) for initial feedback before submitting the issue in JIRA.
