In this video, learn how to use Postman to use the Vault APIs to store secrets and set configuration.
- [Instructor] Every command we've executed so far…with the CLI has an associated HTTP API.…I'm going to use Postman to demonstrate…using the Vault API.…You can download Postman from www.getpostman.com.…A word of caution;…Postman is great for testing and experimentation.…However, I don't recommend it for working with…a production Vault server.…It's easy to inadvertently save keys and tokens…to a Postman environment, which can also be…saved to the cloud if you're using a Postman account.…
If your containers are already running,…restart them with docker-compose down…from the root directory of the exercise files.…Mine are already stopped, so then you can bring them…back up again with docker-compose up -d.…Now let's switch to Postman.…Make sure you have the exercise files downloaded,…and then from Postman, click the Import button…at the top left of the screen,…find the exercise files on your system,…and in the Postman folder, you'll find this file.…
Open it and then you should have…a Vault folder in the left navigation…
