I just noticed this, and can’t find any documentation that talks about it. There’s no UI element to create a folder that I’ve found, only a secret, but you can do it from the command line. Is this intentional, and is it mentioned in any documentation?
vault kv put secret/hello foo=world excited=yes
vault kv put secret/hello/2ndlevel bar=wtf
PS C:\ProgramData\chocolatey\bin\.vault> vault kv list secret/hello Keys ---- 2ndlevel PS C:\ProgramData\chocolatey\bin\.vault> vault kv get secret/hello ======= Metadata ======= Key Value --- ----- created_time 2022-04-29T23:40:22.681958035Z custom_metadata <nil> deletion_time n/a destroyed false version 1 ===== Data ===== Key Value --- ----- excited yes foo world
And the UI shows one “hello” with the “document” icon that it uses for secrets, and one with a folder icon.
This isn’t a problem for me as such, but I’m not seeing any real documentation about folders (if they’re even called that) and how to deal with them as paths. I’ve not encountered other systems that let an item and a container at the same location have the same name.
