»kv rollback

The kv rollback command restores a given previous version to the current version at the given path. The value is written as a new version; for instance, if the current version is 5 and the rollback version is 2, the data from version 2 will become version 6. This command makes it easy to restore unintentionally overwritten data.


Restores the version 2 of the data at key "creds":

$ vault kv rollback -version=2 secret/creds
