we are upgrading from Vault 0.10.3 to 1.5.5 here and while performing the migration I noticed that in the storage under the path /auth/<uuid>/accessor/… there is a huge number of files (hundreds of thousands). BTW, we are using an Azure Storage account as the backend.
The Vault instance has been running for several years and many of the files under that path are already several years old. I wonder if it is okay to have that many files under that location and what they are used for? Is it possible to clean them up?
I listed the token accessors using the
/auth/token/accessors but this only showed a few dozen, so it doesn’t seem to be related.
Thanks for any hints!
