Create DID-Linked Resource

Create a DID-Linked Resource associated with a cheqd DID over REST API

Using the /resource/create API, users are able to create custom DID-Linked Resources, including:

  1. Schemas

  2. Credential Definitions

  3. Trust Registries

  4. Logos associated with DIDs

  5. Governance files

Step 1: Set up your account

Make sure you have set up your account with Credential Service and are logged in, using our guide below:

Step 2: Create a DID

Before you can create a DID-Linked Resource, you need to create a "parent" DID which is used to link the Resource on-ledger. Use the API in the page below to create a DID:

Step 3. Create your Resource content and save the file locally

DID-Linked Resources can be any type of file or content that is below ~45kb in size.

For the purpose of an example, lets use an AnonCreds schema (JSON file) as the resource:

  "name": "degreeSchema",
  "version": "1.5.7",
  "attrNames": ["name", "age", "degree", "grade"]

Save this file locally and call it something like resource.json.

Step 4: Encode the file

Prepare a file with resource and encode it into base64, base64url or hex. On Unix systems, you can use the following command input:

$ base64 -w 0 resource.json

Expected output:

$ base64 -w 0 resource.json

Step 5: Set a consistent name and type

Resources are grouped by having identical names and types. This means if you want to create a new version of the same Resource, you will need to specify the same name and type in the following request.

Step 6: Populate the request inputs and hit the API
