Vault SDB Module







New in version 2016.11.0.

This module allows access to Hashicorp Vault using an sdb:// URI.

Base configuration instructions are documented in the execution module docs. Below are noted extra configuration required for the sdb module, but the base configuration must also be completed.

Like all sdb modules, the vault module requires a configuration profile to be configured in either the minion configuration file or a pillar. This profile requires only setting the driver parameter to vault:

  driver: vault

Once configured you can access data using a URL such as:

password: sdb://myvault/secret/passwords/mypassword

In this URL, myvault refers to the configuration profile, secret/passwords is the path where the data resides, and mypassword is the key of the data to return.

The above URI is analogous to running the following vault command:

$ vault read -field=mypassword secret/passwords

Further configuration

The following options can be set in the profile:


When writing data, partially update the secret instead of overwriting it completely. This is usually the expected behavior, since without this option, each secret path can only contain a single mapping key safely. Defaults to False for backwards-compatibility reasons.
