Dev Setup

vault server -dev

and without TLS you will need to export the http address:


Example Python Database Access

We enable the management of postgres in Vault. Note we need the postgres client “pq” installed for vault to validate the connection.

go get -v -u

Now the setup: Step 1

 vault secrets enable postgresql

Step 2 configure a postgres datbase

vault write postgresql/config/connection connection_url="postgresql://postgres:xxxx@localhost:5432/postgres?sslmode=disable"

Where the db url is:

  • postgresql: for the database type
  • databasename:password@host:port
  • and parameters like sslmode=disable where it is not supported

We can configure a lease on the database with:

vault write postgresql/config/lease lease=10h lease_max=24h
vault write  postgresql/roles/readonly sql="CREATE ROLE \"{{name}}\" WITH LOGIN PASSWORD '{{password}}' VALID UNTIL '{{expiration}}';
Success! Data written to: postgresql/roles/readonly
