Deploying Chronicle on Sawtooth¶
Chronicle on Sawtooth cannot be deployed unless you have access
to BTP's official docker image registry. Once you have acquired the credentials
for this registry from BTP you will need to create the target namespace for your
deployment and create an image pull secret in that namespace that you can
reference later. In this example the
chronicle-namespace and the image pull secret is
kubectl create namespace chronicle-namespace kubectl config set-context --current --namespace=chronicle-namespace kubectl create secret docker-registry dockerhub --docker-username=<username> \ --docker-password='<password>' --docker-email=<email>

This option allows you to change the genesis seed on redeployment.
Advanced Deployment Customization¶
