Create the first member

Next we need to select a name for the first member. We’ll use the name Retailer. You’ll also need to specify a username and password for the first member administrator. We’ll use rtadmin and Admin123 as the username and password combination.

Please be aware that in a production environment you should choose a more secure password than this. Bear in mind also that there are several layers of defense around your blockchain network. For example, access to your member peer nodes is restricted to clients with valid certificates running from within one of your own VPCs.

After specifying the member info, select Next. You will be presented with a final confirmation page. Select Create network and member. After proceeding, you will need to wait roughly 20-30 minutes for the network and first member to be deployed. You can observe the status of the deployment in your management console.
