Settings Transaction Processor Configuration File

The Settings transaction processor configuration file specifies the validator endpoint connection to use.

If the config directory contains a file named settings.toml, the configuration settings are applied when the transaction processor starts. Specifying a command-line option will override the setting in the configuration file.


By default, the config directory is /etc/sawtooth/. See Path Configuration File for more information.

An example configuration file is in the sawtooth-core repository at /sawtooth-core/families/settings/packaging/settings.toml.example. To create a Settings transaction processor configuration file, download this example file to the config directory and name it settings.toml. Then edit the file to change the example configuration options as necessary for your system.

The settings.toml configuration file has the following option:

  • connect = “URL

    Identifies the URL of a running validator. Default: tcp://localhost:4004. For example:

    connect = "tcp://localhost:4004"
