In the previous post, we talked about getting the hashi_vault ansible plugin installed. Now we focus on figuring out how to use it.
First we figure it out with curl:
Assuming we have a kv (v2) engine set up under /hello and a secret called mysecret underneath, then the curl to fetch the secret would look like this:
curl --header "X-Vault-Token: xxxx" https://vault.url/v1/hello/data/mysecret
If you are able to retrieve your secret this way, then you are ready to do it in ansible:
--- - hosts: localhost collections: - community.general tasks: - debug: msg: ""
