Vault Proxy Authentication Methods

Approle Authentication

Some of Vault’s plugins support only Approle authentication.

For those types of plugins, you’ll need to specify role_id & secret_id, for using HVP you’ll need to use Access Id & Access key replacing role_id & secret_idcorrespondingly.

For example, Vault Approle authentication using HVP:

export VAULT_ADDR=''
vault write auth/approle/login role_id="<Access Id>" secret_id="<Access Key>"
