We offer two approaches for executing Canton scripts.
- Interactive Console - bin/canton –config … (no command specified) - all errors will be reported to the console, but Canton will remain running.
- Headless - bin/canton run <script-path> –config … - commands are specified in a script rather than executed interactively. - any errors with the script or during command execution should cause the Canton process to exit with a non-zero exit code.
