»Helm Chart

The Vault Helm chart is the recommended way to install and configure Vault on Kubernetes. In addition to running Vault itself, the Helm chart is the primary method for installing and configuring Vault to integrate with other services such as Consul for High Availability (HA) deployments.

This page assumes general knowledge of Helm and how to use it. Using Helm to install Vault requires that Helm is properly installed and configured with your Kubernetes cluster.

»Using the Helm Chart

Helm must be installed and configured on your machine. Please refer to the Helm documentation or the Vault Installation to Minikube via Helm guide.

To use the Helm chart, add the Hashicorp helm repository and check that you have access to the chart:

$ helm repo add hashicorp https://helm.releases.hashicorp.com
"hashicorp" has been added to your repositories

$ helm search repo hashicorp/vault
NAME            CHART VERSION   APP VERSION DESCRIPTION
hashicorp/vault 0.7.0           1.5.2       Official HashiCorp Vault Chart

Example chart usage:

Installing the latest release of the Vault Helm chart with pods prefixed with the name vault.

$ helm install vault hashicorp/vault

Installing a specific version of the chart.

# List the available releases
$ helm search repo hashicorp/vault -l
NAME            CHART VERSION   APP VERSION DESCRIPTION
hashicorp/vault 0.7.0           1.5.2       Official HashiCorp Vault Chart
