chezmoi includes support for Vault using the Vault CLI to expose data as a template function.

The vault CLI needs to be correctly configured on your machine, e.g. the VAULT_ADDR and VAULT_TOKEN environment variables must be set correctly. Verify that this is the case by running:

$ vault kv get -format=json $KEY

The structured data from vault kv get -format=json is available as the vault template function. You can use the .Field syntax of the text/template language to extract the data you want. For example:

{{ (vault "$KEY") }}
