The central ledger is a series of services that facilitate clearing and settlement of transfers between DFSPs, including the following functions:

  • Brokering real-time messaging for funds clearing
  • Maintaining net positions for a deferred net settlement
  • Propagating scheme-level and off-transfer fees

The following documentation represents the services, APIs and endpoints responsible for various ledger functions.



See the Onboarding guide for running the service locally.


Environment variables

The Central Ledger has many options that can be configured through environment variables.

Environment variable Description Example values
CLEDG_DATABASE_URI The connection string for the database the central ledger will use. Postgres is currently the only supported database. postgres://<username>:<password>@localhost:5432/central_ledger
CLEDG_PORT The port the API server will run on. 3000
CLEDG_ADMIN_PORT The port the Admin server will run on. 3001
CLEDG_HOSTNAME The URI that will be used to create and validate links to resources on the central ledger. http://central-ledger
CLEDG_ENABLE_BASIC_AUTH Flag to enable basic auth protection on endpoints that require authorization. Username and password would be the account name and password. false
CLEDG_ENABLE_TOKEN_AUTH Flag to enable token protection on endpoints that require authorization. To create a token, reference the API documentation. false
CLEDG_LEDGER_ACCOUNT_NAME Name of the account setup to receive fees owed to the central ledger. If the account doesn't exist, it will be created on start up. LedgerName
CLEDG_LEDGER_ACCOUNT_PASSWORD Password of the account setup to receive fees owed to the central ledger. LedgerPassword
CLEDG_ADMIN_KEY Key used for admin access to endpoints that require validation. AdminKey
CLEDG_ADMIN_SECRET Secret used for admin access to endpoints that require validation. Secret also used to sign JWTs used for Admin API. AdminSecret
CLEDG_TOKEN_EXPIRATION Time in milliseconds for Admin API tokens to expire. 3600000
CLEDG_EXPIRES_TIMEOUT Time in milliseconds to determine how often transfer expiration process runs. 5000
CLEDG_AMOUNT__PRECISION Numeric value used to determine precision recorded for transfer amounts on this ledger. 10
CLEDG_AMOUNT__SCALE Numeric value used to determine scale recorded for transfer amounts on this ledger. 2


For endpoint documentation, see the API documentation.

For help preparing and executing transfers, see the Transfer Guide


Logs are sent to standard output by default.


Tests include unit, functional, and integration.

Running the tests:

    npm run test:all

Tests include code coverage via istanbul. See the test/ folder for testing scripts.

Running Integration Tests interactively-ish

If you want to run integration tests in a repetitive manner, you can startup the test containers using docker-compose, login to running central-ledger container like so:

docker-compose -f docker-compose.yml -f docker-compose.integration.yml up kafka mysql central-ledger

#in a new shell
docker exec -it cl_central-ledger sh
npm run migrate #first time only
npm run test:int

Auditing Dependencies

We use npm-audit-resolver along with npm audit to check dependencies for vulnerabilities, and keep track of resolved dependencies with an audit-resolv.json file.

To start a new resolution process, run:

npm run audit:resolve

You can then check to see if the CI will pass based on the current dependencies with:

npm run audit:check

And commit the changed audit-resolv.json to ensure that CircleCI will build correctly.
