    Testing Locally

    Setting up a vault environment is no easy task. The following might help...

    Start a vault server in development mode

    docker run -d -p 8200:8200 --hostname vault --name vault sjourdan/vault
    docker logs vault

    Make note of the Unseal Key and Root Token and configure exports

    export VAULT_ADDR=http://vault:8200

    Create an alias so you can execute vault commands from a container

    alias vaultcmd="docker run --volume $(pwd)/tests/vault:/tmp --link vault --rm -e VAULT_ADDR -e VAULT_TOKEN sjourdan/vault"

    Unseal the vault so you can read / write secrets

    vaultcmd unseal <INSERT_UNSEAL_KEY>

    Upload a policy

    vaultcmd policy-write demo-live /tmp/policies/live/demo.json

    Configure an app-id login

    vaultcmd auth-enable app-id
    vaultcmd write auth/app-id/map/app-id/svc-demo-api value=demo-live display_name=svc-demo-api
    vaultcmd write auth/app-id/map/user-id/demo-live value=svc-demo-api
    vaultcmd policy-write demo-live /tmp/policies/live/demo.json

    You should now be able to run tests. Hoorah!
