Managing an FAssets Agent with the FAssets Agent Admin Console#

The FAssets Agent Admin Console (Admin Console) helps you manage agent tasks like depositing collateral and setting up alerts.

Although managing the agent bot is simplified by the Admin Console UI, installation of both the agent bot and the Admin Console UI is done from the command line.

The following procedures teach you how to configure the components required to use the Admin Console, including:

  • A backend that reads the state of the agent bot and makes it available to the UI
  • The UI, which talks to the backend

Afterward, these procedures explain how to use the Admin Console to manage agent tasks.

Open Beta

The FAssets system is currently in the Open Beta period. During this phase, user-friendly tools are still being developed.

Some web browsers and ad blockers might prevent this functionality.

Alternatively, you can contact support@flarelabs.org.

Prerequisites#

You need to have deployed an agent bot and have it running.

Configuration Guide#

Configuring the Backend Bot#

After you have successfully deployed the agent bot and it is running, you can configure the backend that links it with the Admin Console UI.

  1. In the folder where you installed the agent bot (typically fasset-bots), navigate to packages/fasset-bots-api, and create an .env file. This file is not the same file that you created when you deployed the bot.
  2. Copy the following text, and paste it into the .env file you just created:

    ## Path to config file for the agent bot (and other bots)
    FASSET_BOT_CONFIG="../fasset-bots-core/run-config/coston-bot.json"
    
    ## Path to secrets file for the agent bot (and other bots)
    FASSET_BOT_SECRETS="../../secrets.json"
    
    ## Enable the following line on Windows to allow reading secrets, since
    ## secrets file permission check does not work
    # ALLOW_SECRETS_ON_WINDOWS=true
    
    ## (Optional) Path to config file for users, instead you can use `-c`
    ## parameter
    # FASSET_USER_CONFIG="../fasset-bots-core/run-config/coston-user.json"
    
    ## (Optional) Path to secrets json file for users, instead you can use `-s`
    ## parameter.
    # FASSET_USER_SECRETS=""
    
    ## (Optional) Path to directory, used for storing unexecuted minting.
    ## Defaults to `fasset` subdirectory in user's home directory.
    # FASSET_USER_DATA_DIR=""
    
    ## (Optional) Path to database file for the bot.
    FASSET_BOT_SQLITE_DB="../../path-to-.db-file"
    
  3. Choose one of the following options:

    • If you already have agent vaults:
      1. Navigate to the root of the fasset-bots repository, and locate the .db file. The file name will be in the fasset-bots-coston.SOME_HEX_VALUE.db format.
      2. Copy the file name of the .db file.
      3. Return to the .env file you created in step 1, and paste the file name of the .db file as the value for FASSET_BOT_SQLITE_DB. For example, FASSET_BOT_SQLITE_DB="../../fasset-bots-coston.43B835D3.db".
    • If you do not have agent vaults:
      1. Open the .env file you created when you deployed the agent bot, and add FASSET_BOT_SQLITE_DB ="./fasset-bots-coston.db".
      2. Open the .env file you created in step 1, and specify ../../fasset-bots-coston.db as the value of FASSET_BOT_SQLITE_DB.

Enabling Alerts#

You can enable alerts to be sent to the backend and displayed in the frontend.

  1. In the root of the respository, create a file named alerts.json.
  2. Copy the following text and paste it into the alerts.json file.

    {
         "extends": "coston-bot.json",
         "apiNotifierConfigs": [
         {
                 "apiKey": "",
                 "apiUrl": "http://localhost:1234/"
         }
         ]
    }
    
  3. Open the .env file in this same folder, and change the path specified for FASSET_BOT_CONFIG to the alerts.json file:

    FASSET_BOT_CONFIG="./alerts.json"
    

Running the Admin Console Backend#

  1. In the root of the repository, run the command:

    yarn start_agent_api_debug
    

This command must continue to run for as long as you intend to use the UI. When you are finished using the UI and want to stop the server, press Ctrl + C.

Info

Run start_agent_api_debug as a service to maximize uptime for production use. Here, you have instructions to run the agent as a systemd service for running the bot as a daemon.

Setting Up the Admin Console#

  1. Navigate outside of the fasset-bots folder.
  2. Clone the UI repository and enter the src directory:

    git clone https://github.com/flare-labs-ltd/fasset-agent-ui.git
    cd fasset-agent-ui/src
    
  3. Create .env file, copy the following text, paste it in the .env file, and save it.

    WALLETCONNECT_PROJECT_ID=44e7bd998ec5a65ca096ab99c9b71af8
    API_URL=http://localhost:1234/api
    

Running the Admin Console#

  1. Ensure both the agent bot and the backend are running.
  2. Navigate to the src directory.
  3. You can run the app locally or from Docker:

    The Admin Console dashboard is displayed.

    Admin Console dashboard
    Admin Console dashboard.

Usage Guide#

Ensure the agent bot, the backend, and the Admin Console are running and that http://localhost:3000 is open in a browser showing the Admin Console dashboard.

The Admin Console dashboard shows:

Connecting to the Admin Console#

Some operations in the Admin Console can be done only by the management address, so you must connect using this address.

  1. On the Admin Console dashboard, click Connect Wallet, and sign in with your management address.

Adding Agent Vaults#

  1. On the Admin Console dashboard, locate the agent bot for which you want to add a vault, and click the three dots icon in the Actions column. The Agent Bot Actions menu is displayed.
  2. Click Add Vault.
  3. Specify values for required settings FASSET TYPE, VAULT COLLATERAL TOKEN, and the POOL TOKEN SUFFIX. The suffix identifies your vault and is used to complete the name of the collateral pool token (CPT). For example, LBD.
  4. If necessary, adjust the default values for the other settings.
  5. Click Save and execute, and then click Confirm to proceed.

Changing Agent Vault Settings#

  1. In the Vaults section on the dashboard, locate the agent vault you want to modify, and click the three dots icon in the Actions column. The Vault options menu is displayed.

    Vault Options
    Vault Options.

  2. Under Vault actions, click View Vault. The settings for the agent vault are displayed.

    Agent Vault Settings
    Admin Vault Settings.

  3. Click Edit at the top of the page.

  4. Update your settings. These settings always have time locks to minimize abuse. During the Open Beta, the time-locks are further reduced so that you can try different configurations. Before you save your updates, ensure you understand the time-locks associated with settings you are changing.
  5. Click Save and execute.

Depositing Vault Collateral#

  1. In the Vaults section on the dashboard, locate the vault you want to update, and click the three dots icon in the Actions column. The Vault options menu is displayed.

  3. In the AMOUNT field, specify the amount of collateral to deposit into the vault. You can deposit only the type of collateral that your vault was created to support. For example, if you created a testUSDC vault, you can deposit only testUSDC.
  4. Click Deposit. A confirmation message is displayed.

Depositing Pool Collateral#

  1. In the Vaults section on the dashboard, locate the vault you want to update, and click the three dots icon in the Actions column. The Vault options menu is displayed.

  3. In the AMOUNT FLR field, specify the amount of $FLR to deposit into the collateral pool.
  4. Click Deposit. A confirmation message is displayed.

Activating and Closing Vaults#

Activating a vault makes it publicly available for minting FAssets. To be activated, a vault must contain at least 1 lot for minting.

Closing a vault makes it unavailable for minting FAssets.

    2. In the Agent Vault Operations section, click Activate Vault (Enter). The Activate Vault window is displayed.
    3. Read the message in the Activate Vault window about minting requirements, ensure your vault contains at least 1 lot to meet the requirement, and then click Confirm to activate the vault. A confirmation message is displayed.
  • To close a vault:

    1. On the dashboard, locate the vault you want to close, and click the three dots icon in the Actions column. The Vault options menu is displayed.
