A new platform for documentation and tutorials is launching soon.
We are migrating Vault documentation into HashiCorp Developer, our new developer experience.
This page contains the list of deprecations and important or breaking changes for Vault 1.11.x compared to 1.10. Please read it carefully.
»Elasticsearch Database Secrets Engine
The Elaticsearch Database Secrets Engine now uses the new
/_security base API
path instead of
/_xpack/security when managing Elasticsearch. If users are on
an Elasticsearch version prior to 6, they will need to switch back to the old
API path by setting the bool config option
»Postgres Library Change
Vault 1.11+ uses pgx instead of lib/pq for Postgres connections. If you are
using parameters like
fallback_application_name that pgx does not support, you
may need to update your
connection_url before upgrading to Vault 1.11+.
»Cluster initialization hangs with
feature no longer successfully attempts to rejoin the raft cluster every 2
seconds following a join failure.
The bug was introduced by commit https://github.com/hashicorp/vault/commit/cc6409222ce246ed72d067debe6ffeb8f62f9dad and first reported in https://github.com/hashicorp/vault/issues/16486.
Affects versions 1.11.1 and 1.10.5. Versions prior to these are unaffected.
NOTE: This error does not extend to version 1.9.8, which is slightly different in this portion of the code and does not exhibit the same behavior.
New releases addressing this bug are coming soon.
