Vault Agent & client-side triggering template rewrites

Hi folks,

I’ve got a VM where a build process deposits a bunch of vault template files, and I’m trying to get vault agent to insert the secrets when a build completes.

As far as my research shows me, Vault will do a fairly quick write from the templates when data changes on the Vault side, but it doesn’t look like changes to client-side templates triggers a rewrite. I did eventually see a rewrite, but that was 25m after I changed the file client-side.

Is there a way to trigger the client-side daemon to do a rewrites? I could obviously restart the service, but that would mean either letting a long-lived password live on the VM in a file, or finagling a new password down there every time I did a build.
