A new platform for documentation and tutorials is launching soon.
We are migrating Vault documentation into HashiCorp Developer, our new developer experience.
secrets command groups subcommands for interacting with Vault's secrets
engines. Each secrets engine behaves differently. Please see the documentation
for more information.
Some secrets engines persist data, some act as data pass-through, and some generate dynamic credentials. The secrets engine will likely require configuration after it is mounted. For details on the specific configuration options, please see the secrets engine documentation.
Enable a secrets engine:
$ vault secrets enable database Success! Enabled the database secrets engine at: database/
List all secrets engines:
$ vault secrets list Path Type Description ---- ---- ----------- cubbyhole/ cubbyhole per-token private secret storage database/ database n/a secret/ kv key/value secret storage sys/ system system endpoints used for control, policy and debugging
Move a secrets engine to a new path:
$ vault secrets move database/ db-prod/ Success! Moved secrets engine database/ to: db-prod/
Tune a secrets engine:
$ vault secrets tune -max-lease-ttl=30m db-prod/ Success! Tuned the secrets engine at: db-prod/
Disable a secrets engine:
$ vault secrets disable db-prod/ Success! Disabled the secrets engine (if it existed) at: db-prod/
Usage: vault secrets <subcommand> [options] [args] # ... Subcommands: disable Disable a secrets engine enable Enable a secrets engine list List enabled secrets engines move Move a secrets engine to a new path tune Tune a secrets engine configuration
