Deploying your bot

Once you have tested your bot locally, you are ready to deploy it to the Forta network production environment! Deploying your bot involves 3 key steps:

  1. publishing a Docker image
  2. registering it in the Bot Registry smart contract
  3. staking 100 FORT tokens on your bot

Acquiring Polygon MATIC tokens

The Bot Registry smart contract currently lives on Polygon mainnet, so you will need MATIC tokens on Polygon mainnet in order to deploy your bot. You can acquire some MATIC tokens by following this guide.

Using Forta App vs CLI

You can choose to deploy using Forta App or deploy using the CLI tool. You may want to use the CLI tool, for example, in your CI/CD pipeline.
