Quick Links

Getting Started

This is a Vault plugin and is meant to work with Vault. This guide assumes you have already installed Vault and have a basic understanding of how Vault works.

Otherwise, first read this guide on how to get started with Vault.

To learn specifically about how plugins work, see documentation on Vault plugins.


Please see documentation for the plugin on the Vault website.

This plugin is currently built into Vault and by default is accessed at ad. To enable this in a running Vault server:

$ vault secrets enable ad
Success! Enabled the ad secrets engine at: ad/

Additionally starting with Vault 0.10 this backend is by default mounted at secret/.


If you wish to work on this plugin, you'll first need Go installed on your machine (version 1.17+ is required).

For local dev first make sure Go is properly installed, including setting up a GOPATH.

To compile a development version of this plugin, run make or make dev. This will put the plugin binary in the bin and $GOPATH/bin folders. dev mode will only generate the binary for your platform and is faster:

$ make
$ make dev

Put the plugin binary into a location of your choice. This directory will be specified as the plugin_directory in the Vault config used to start the server.

plugin_directory = "path/to/plugin/directory"

Start a Vault server with this config file:

$ vault server -config=path/to/config.json ...

Once the server is started, register the plugin in the Vault server's plugin catalog:

$ vault plugin register \
        -sha256=<SHA256 Hex value of the plugin binary> \
        -command="vault-plugin-secrets-active-directory" \
        secret \

Note you should generate a new sha256 checksum if you have made changes to the plugin. Example using openssl:

openssl dgst -sha256 $GOPATH/vault-plugin-secrets-ad
SHA256(.../go/bin/vault-plugin-secrets-ad)= 896c13c0f5305daed381952a128322e02bc28a57d0c862a78cbc2ea66e8c6fa1

Enable the secrets plugin backend using the secrets enable plugin command:

$ vault secrets enable custom-ad

Successfully enabled 'plugin' at 'custom-ad'!


If you are developing this plugin and want to verify it is still functioning (and you haven't broken anything else), we recommend running the tests.

To run the tests, run the following:

$ make test

You can also specify a TESTARGS variable to filter tests like so:

$ make test TESTARGS='--run=TestConfig'
