» Azure Auth Method (API)

This is the API documentation for the Vault Azure auth method plugin. To learn more about the usage and operation, see the Vault Azure method documentation.

This documentation assumes the plugin method is mounted at the /auth/azure path in Vault. Since it is possible to enable auth methods at any location, please update your API calls accordingly.

» Configure

Configures the credentials required for the plugin to perform API calls to Azure. These credentials will be used to query the metadata about the virtual machine.

Method Path
POST /auth/azure/config

» Parameters

  • tenant_id (string: <required>) - The tenant id for the Azure Active Directory organization.
  • resource (string: <required>) - The configured URL for the application registered in Azure Active Directory.
  • environment (string: 'AzurePublicCloud') - The Azure cloud environment. Valid values: AzurePublicCloud, AzureUSGovernmentCloud, AzureChinaCloud, AzureGermanCloud.
  • client_id (string: '') - The client id for credentials to query the Azure APIs. Currently read permissions to query compute resources are required.
  • client_secret (string: '') - The client secret for credentials to query the Azure APIs.

» Sample Payload

{
  "tenant_id": "kd83...",
  "resource": "https://vault.hashicorp.com/",
  "client_id": "12ud...",
  "client_secret": "DUJDS3..."
}

» Sample Request

$ curl \
    --header "X-Vault-Token: ..." \
    --request POST \
    --data @payload.json \
    https://127.0.0.1:8200/v1/auth/azure/config

» Read Config

Returns the previously configured config, including credentials.

Method Path
GET /auth/azure/config

» Sample Request

$ curl \
    --header "X-Vault-Token: ..." \
    https://127.0.0.1:8200/v1/auth/azure/config

» Sample Response

{
  "data":{
    "tenant_id": "kd83...",
    "resource": "https://vault.hashicorp.com/",
    "client_id": "12ud...",
    "client_secret": "DUJDS3..."
  },
  ...
}

» Delete Config

Deletes the previously configured Azure config and credentials.

Method Path
DELETE /auth/azure/config

» Sample Request

$ curl \
    --header "X-Vault-Token: ..." \
    --request DELETE \
    https://127.0.0.1:8200/v1/auth/azure/config

» Create Role

Registers a role in the method. Role types have specific entities that can perform login operations against this endpoint. Constraints specific to the role type must be set on the role. These are applied to the authenticated entities attempting to login.

Method Path
POST /auth/azure/role/:name

» Parameters

  • token_ttl (integer: 0 or string: "") - The incremental lifetime for generated tokens. This current value of this will be referenced at renewal time.
  • token_max_ttl (integer: 0 or string: "") - The maximum lifetime for generated tokens. This current value of this will be referenced at renewal time.
  • token_policies (array: [] or comma-delimited string: "") - List of policies to encode onto generated tokens. Depending on the auth method, this list may be supplemented by user/group/other values.

  • token_bound_cidrs (array: [] or comma-delimited string: "") - List of CIDR blocks; if set, specifies blocks of IP addresses which can authenticate successfully, and ties the resulting token to these blocks as well.
  • token_explicit_max_ttl (integer: 0 or string: "") - If set, will encode an explicit max TTL onto the token. This is a hard cap even if token_ttl and token_max_ttl would otherwise allow a renewal.
  • token_no_default_policy (bool: false) - If set, the default policy will not be set on generated tokens; otherwise it will be added to the policies set in token_policies.
  • token_num_uses (integer: 0) - The maximum number of times a generated token may be used (within its lifetime); 0 means unlimited.
  • token_period (integer: 0 or string: "") - The period, if any, to set on the token.
  • token_type (string: "") - The type of token that should be generated. Can be service, batch, or default to use the mount's tuned default (which unless changed will be service tokens). For token store roles, there are two additional possibilities: default-service and default-batch which specify the type to return unless the client requests a different type at generation time.
