» AliCloud Secrets Engine (API)

This is the API documentation for the Vault AliCloud secrets engine. For general information about the usage and operation of the AliCloud secrets engine, please see the Vault AliCloud documentation.

This documentation assumes the AliCloud secrets engine is enabled at the /alicloud path in Vault. Since it is possible to enable secrets engines at any location, please update your API calls accordingly.

» Config management

This endpoint configures the root RAM credentials to communicate with AliCloud. AliCloud will use credentials in the following order:

  1. Environment variables
  2. A static credential configuration set at this endpoint
  3. Instance metadata (recommended)

To use instance metadata, leave the static credential configuration unset.

At present, this endpoint does not confirm that the provided AliCloud credentials are valid AliCloud credentials with proper permissions.

Please see the Vault AliCloud documentation for the policies that should be attached to the access key you provide.

  • inline_policies (string, optional) - The policy document JSON to be generated and attached to the access token.
  • role_arn (string, optional) - The ARN of a role that will be assumed to obtain STS credentials. See Vault AliCloud documentation regarding trusted actors.
  • ttl (int, optional) - The duration in seconds after which the issued token should expire. Defaults to 0, in which case the value will fallback to the system/mount defaults.
  • max_ttl (int, optional) - The maximum allowed lifetime of tokens issued using this role.
