A Pulumi package for creating and managing vault cloud resources.

Project description

Build Status

Hashicorp Vault Resource Provider

The Vault resource provider for Pulumi lets you manage Vault resources in your cloud programs. To use this package, please install the Pulumi CLI first.


This package is available in many languages in the standard packaging formats.

Node.js (Java/TypeScript)

To use from JavaScript or TypeScript in Node.js, install using either npm:

$ npm install @pulumi/vault

or yarn:

$ yarn add @pulumi/vault


To use from Python, install using pip:

$ pip install pulumi_vault


To use from Go, use go get to grab the latest version of the library

$ go get


The following configuration points are available:

  • vault:address - (Required) Origin URL of the Vault server. This is a URL with a scheme, a hostname and a port but with no path. May be set via the VAULT_ADDR environment variable.
  • vault:token - (Required) Vault token that will be used by Terraform to authenticate. May be set via the VAULT_TOKEN environment variable. If none is otherwise supplied, Terraform will attempt to read it from ~/.vault-token (where the vault command stores its current token). Terraform will issue itself a new token that is a child of the one given, with a short TTL to limit the exposure of any requested secrets. Note that the given token must have the update capability on the auth/token/create path in Vault in order to create child tokens.
  • vault:ca_cert_file - (Optional) Path to a file on local disk that will be used to validate the certificate presented by the Vault server. May be set via the VAULT_CACERT environment variable.
  • vault:ca_cert_dir - (Optional) Path to a directory on local disk that contains one or more certificate files that will be used to validate the certificate presented by the Vault server. May be set via the VAULT_CAPATH environment variable.
  • vault:client_auth - (Optional) A configuration block, described below, that provides credentials used by Terraform to authenticate with the Vault server. At present there is little reason to set this, because Terraform does not support the TLS certificate authentication mechanism.
    • vault:cert_file - (Required) Path to a file on local disk that contains the PEM-encoded certificate to present to the server.
    • vault:key_file - (Required) Path to a file on local disk that contains the PEM-encoded private key for which the authentication certificate was issued.
  • vault:skip_tls_verify - (Optional) Set this to true to disable verification of the Vault server’s TLS certificate. This is strongly discouraged except in prototype or development environments, since it exposes the possibility that Terraform can be tricked into writing secrets to a server controlled by an intruder. May be set via the VAULT_SKIP_VERIFY environment variable.
  • vault:max_lease_ttl_seconds - (Optional) Used as the duration for the intermediate Vault token Terraform issues itself, which in turn limits the duration of secret leases issued by Vault. Defaults to 20 minutes and may be set via the TERRAFORM_VAULT_MAX_TTL environment variable. See the section above on Using Vault credentials in Terraform configuration for the implications of this setting.
  • vault:max_retries - (Optional) Used as the maximum number of retries when a 5xx error code is encountered. Defaults to 2 retries and may be set via the VAULT_MAX_RETRIES environment variable.
  • vault:namespace - (Optional) Set the namespace to use. May be set via the VAULT_NAMESPACE environment variable. Available only for Vault Enterprise.
