The storage stanza configures the storage backend, which represents the location for the durable storage of Vault's information. Each backend has pros, cons, advantages, and trade-offs. For example, some backends support high availability while others provide a more robust backup and restoration process.

storage Stanza

The storage stanza configures the storage backend, which represents the location for the durable storage of Vault's information. Each backend has pros, cons, advantages, and trade-offs. For example, some backends support high availability while others provide a more robust backup and restoration process. For information about a specific backend, choose one from the navigation on the left.

Configuration

Storage backend configuration is done through the Vault configuration file using the storage stanza:

storage [NAME] {
  [PARAMETERS...]
}

For example:

storage "file" {
  path = "/mnt/vault/data"
}

For configuration options which also read an environment variable, the environment variable will take precedence over values in the configuration file.
