Vault 1.15.2, 1.14.6, and 1.13.10 released!

Hi folks,

The Vault team is announcing the release of 1.15.2, as well as Vault 1.14.6 and 1.13.10.

Community Edition binaries can be downloaded at [1, 2, 3]. Enterprise binaries are available to customers as well.

As a reminder, if you believe you have found a security issue in Vault, please responsibly disclose by emailing and do not use the public issue tracker. Our security policy and our PGP key can be found at [4].

The major features and improvements in these releases are:

  • Logger Unbound Memory Usage: In 1.13.7, 1.14.3, and 1.15.0, we fixed a bug that made some loggers in Vault not respond to SIGHUPs to reload their configuration. In the process of fixing that bug we introduced a bug preventing unused loggers from being cleaned up, and leading to unbound memory usage. The memory consumption is particularly notable for logins to Vault Enterprise. We have reverted the logger bug fix, so the loggers may not respond to SIGHUPs to reload their configurations [12].
  • Error during metrics gathering: In Vault 1.13.9, 1.14.5, and 1.15.1, we introduced a change to improve state change speed (a node becoming active or standby). This change sometimes causes a concurrent iteration and write on a map, which causes Vault to crash.
  • Internal Error – Namespace (Enterprise): If a user is a member of a group that gets a policy from a namespace other than the one they’re trying to log into, and that policy doesn’t exist, Vault returns an internal error. This impacts all auth methods.

See the Changelog at [5] for the full list of improvements and bug fixes.

See the Feature Deprecation Notice and Plans page [10] for our upcoming feature deprecation plans.

Community [8] and Enterprise [9] Docker images will be available soon.


See [6] for general upgrade instructions, and [7] for upgrade instructions and known issues.

As always, we recommend upgrading and testing this release in an isolated environment. If you experience any non-security issues, please report them on the Vault GitHub issue tracker or post to the Vault Discuss Forum at [11].

We hope you enjoy Vault 1.15.2!

Sincerely, The Vault Team
