MyToken Uncaught ReferenceError: MINTER_ROLE is not defined

I am learning Access Control and testing MyToken.sol
I use truffle console to test it and encountered error when testing hasRole() function. Please see below…

:computer: Environment

OpenZeppelin 3.x MyToken.sol & Access Control example code

Truffle v5.1.53 (core: 5.1.53)
Solidity - ^0.6.0 (solc-js)
Node v14.15.1
Web3.js v1.2.9

I encountered error below…

Hi @qoopme,

When accessing the MINTER_ROLE externally, we need to use the getter for the MINTER_ROLE constant. The compiler automatically creates getter functions for all public state variables, (see: https://docs.soliditylang.org/en/latest/contracts.html#getter-functions).

So rather than token.MINTER_ROLE we need to use token.MINTER_ROLE().

You can try this out in the console and see the difference in the values.

I tried …
truffle(development)> token.hasRole(token.MINTER_ROLE(),accounts[1])
got error

another tried and it works

truffle(development)> await token.hasRole(await token.MINTER_ROLE(), accounts[0])
‘false’

Finally I can move on learning openzeppelin
Thanks very much !

Hi @qoopme,

You could also have a look at: Create an ERC20 using Truffle, without writing Solidity for some of the interaction via the console.

Also the OpenZeppelin Learn guides: https://docs.openzeppelin.com/learn/

Feel free to create new topics to ask any questions.
