I am currently learning quorum. I was able to build two node environment by referring to "Creating a network from scratch" in the following quorum official link, and successed to attach node1 using geth.ipc.


But I don't know how to create private-transactions between two nodes as a flow after this. Does it have any other setting files and script files its need?

static-nodes.json file is below.


genesis.json file is below.

    "alloc": {
        "balance": "1000000000000000000000000000"
        "balance": "2000000000000000000000000000"
   "coinbase": "0x0000000000000000000000000000000000000000",

As per the response from Florian - follow the instructions in the docs for Creating Private Transactions/Contracts.

Make sure you have a transaction manager running for each node (e.g. Tessera).

Essentially you just need to add a 'privateFor' field to the transaction; this must contain the public key of the private transaction participant (i.e. the public key for the transaction manager on the other node).

BTW Assuming you're using a recent version of Quorum, I'd suggest also adding the following to your genesis:

"constantinopleBlock": 0,
