Unmutable canister

If I use a canister to host a smart contract, how is the canister “locked” so that the developer cannot change the contract? How would cycles be handled?

Remove any owners using the IC management canister. The Internet Computer Interface Specification :: Internet Computer

await (IC.update_settings( {
       canister_id = cid.canister_id; 
       settings = { 
         controllers = ?[];
         compute_allocation = null;
         freezing_threshold = ?31_540_000} })

Automatic cycle top up is not yet available(I’m interested in that as well) but for now you can expose a query function that will return the existing balance and top up via command line.

Thank you Gabriel. I discover more and more, but there is a lot …

Instead of removing yourself from the controller, I suggest you consider using this:


hah, nice, wasn’t aware this is out.
