NPM Downloads

Amplication plugin that allows easy management of secrets by using HashiCorp Vault.

Purpose

This purpose of this plugin is to easily and securely use secrets from HashiCorp Vault.

Configuration

Plugin Fetch Mode

The plugins are fetched by two methods:

  • STARTUP - In this method, the plugins are fetched during the startup time (Initially loaded).
  • ON_DEMAND - In this method, the plugins are fetched during the runtime (Loaded when the secrets are needed).

You need to define also a property named secretNames that will contain a list of the secrets that the service needs to interact with (see below for the formatting of the secret name).

Example:

"fetchMode": "STARTUP",
"secretNames": [
    "/path/common",
    "/path/path1:SecretA",
    "/path/path2:SecretB",
    "/path/path2/path3:SecretC"
]

Plugin auth mode

The plugin allows authentication by two methods:

  • By using root token

    If you want to authenticate by using Root token, choose the authMode as TOKEN. To use this authentication mode, you need to set your root token inside of the .env file

  • By using app role

    If you want to use AppRole mode, choose the authMode as APPROLE. To use this authentication mode, you need to set your Role Id and the Secret Id inside of the .env file

Example:

"authMode": "APPROLE/TOKEN",

Secret name format

The secret name must be formatted in either of the following way:

  • <secret_path>:<secret_name> - This format specifies that a single secret named secret_name needs to be loaded from the secret_path path [applies to both fetch mode].
  • <secret_path> - This format specifies that all the secrets that are in the secret_path needs to be loaded [only applies to STARTUP fetch mode].

Usage

To use this plugin:

  1. Enable the plugin in your Amplication app.
  2. If you are using AppRole method, enable the AppRole access mode in dashboard.
  3. Create ACL policy for the secrets and attach the policy to the AppRole method.

This plugin will override your default implementation for SecretsManagerService to use the secrets from HashiCorp Vault
