HL Indy Email Verification Service


jq and ngrok are available on package manager systems for different platforms such as Homebrew (Mac), Chocolatey (Windows) and various Linux distribution package managers.


Open two shell/terminal sessions:

  1. From within the scripts folder execute ./ This will create a tunnel for the agent.

  2. From within the docker folder:

    • run ./manage build to assemble the runtime images for the services
    • when the build completes, run ./manage up

Refer to manage -h for additional usage information.

Once services are started, visit http://localhost:8080 to see the app running and visit http://localhost:8050 to see any outbound mail the app is sending (it won't actually send any email message in the development environment.)

Deploying to Openshift

Param Files

You only need to edit the param file if you intend to deploy on your own namespace

Navigate to the openshift folder and view the existing param files. Go into email-verification-agent-deploy.param and email-verification-service-deploy.param and set
and set it to whatever your project namespace is.

Also navigate to and at the line export PROJECT_NAMESPACE=${PROJECT_NAMESPACE:-a99fd4} replace a99fd4 with your project namespace name


Now that our param files are set up, we're ready to start the builds using the openshift developer script here.
Now that the builds have been completed it's time to start the deployment and tag the images


Follow the deployment section to kickoff the deployment. Follow the prompts on the screen and the deployment will start. Look over the deployment configuration and make sure everything is in order, next tag the image streams

oc -n a99fd4-tools tag email-verification-agent:latest email-verification-agent:dev
oc -n a99fd4-tools tag email-verification-service:latest email-verification-service:dev
oc -n a99fd4-tools tag postgresql:latest postgresql:dev
oc -n a99fd4-tools tag email-verification-demo:latest email-verification-demo:dev

This deployment will initially fail because we haven't registered our did and ver key on the ledger. To do so, go to or wherever you set your admin route to point to, and authorize with your api-key. Next scroll down untill to see the wallet section and execute the /wallet/did get request with no parameters. This should return your did and verkey.

Next we have to register our agent on the ledger. This tutorial uses the sovrin staging network but you can use whatever network you like, so long as it is exposed to the internet. if you're using sovrin staging, make sure you select StagingNet from the dropdown on the sovrin website. Enter your DID and VerKey in the fields and click submit (leave payment address blank).

Next we have to accept the taa. Go back to the swagger api interface and run get /ledger/taa from the ledger section. Copy the entire contents of the text attribute from the response and paste it into the text attribute in POST /ledger/taa/accept. Copy the version number as well and set the mechanism attribute to be at_submission. Execute the request and you should see an empty response body with status code 200.

Go back to the openshift developer console and start a rollout on email-verification-service if it hasn't already restarted. Once email-verification-service is up and running, you're ready to start issuing email credentials.
