1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Enter your internal repository url

(this should look similar to

4. Choose your deployment method:

choco upgrade vault -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade vault -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0

Exit $exitCode

Vault is a tool for securely accessing secrets. A secret is anything that you want to tightly control access to, such as API keys, passwords, certificates, and more. Vault provides a unified interface to any secret, while providing tight access control and recording a detailed audit log.

A modern system requires access to a multitude of secrets: database credentials, API keys for external services, credentials for service-oriented architecture communication, etc. Understanding who is accessing what secrets is already very difficult and platform-specific. Adding on key rolling, secure storage, and detailed audit logs is almost impossible without a custom solution. This is where Vault steps in.

The key features of Vault are:

  • Secure Secret Storage: Arbitrary key/value secrets can be stored in Vault. Vault encrypts these secrets prior to writing them to persistent storage, so gaining access to the raw storage isn't enough to access your secrets. Vault can write to disk, Consul, and more.
  • Dynamic Secrets: Vault can generate secrets on-demand for some systems, such as AWS or SQL databases. For example, when an application needs to access an S3 bucket, it asks Vault for credentials, and Vault will generate an AWS keypair with valid permissions on demand. After creating these dynamic secrets, Vault will also automatically revoke them after the lease is up.
  • Data Encryption: Vault can encrypt and decrypt data without storing it. This allows security teams to define encryption parameters and developers to store encrypted data in a location such as SQL without having to design their own encryption methods.
  • Leasing and Renewal: All secrets in Vault have a lease associated with it. At the end of the lease, Vault will automatically revoke that secret. Clients are able to renew leases via built-in renew APIs.
  • Revocation: Vault has built-in support for secret revocation. Vault can revoke not only single secrets, but a tree of secrets, for example all secrets read by a specific user, or all secrets of a particular type. Revocation assists in key rolling as well as locking down systems in the case of an intrusion.

For more information, see the introduction section of the Vault website.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.

0.9.2 (January 26th, 2018)


  • Okta Auth Backend: While the Okta auth backend was successfully verifying usernames and passwords, it was not checking the returned state of the account, so accounts that had been marked locked out could still be used to log in. Only accounts in SUCCESS or PASSWORD_WARN states are now allowed.
  • Periodic Tokens: A regression in 0.9.1 meant that periodic tokens created by the AppRole, AWS, and Cert auth backends would expire when the max TTL for the backend/mount/system was hit instead of their stated behavior of living as long as they are renewed. This is now fixed; existing tokens do not have to be reissued as this was purely a regression in the renewal logic.
  • Seal Wrapping: During certain replication states values written marked for seal wrapping may not be wrapped on the secondaries. This has been fixed, and existing values will be wrapped on next read or write. This does not affect the barrier keys.


  • sys/health DR Secondary Reporting: The replication_dr_secondary bool returned by sys/health could be misleading since it would be false both when a cluster was not a DR secondary but also when the node is a standby in the cluster and has not yet fully received state from the active node. This could cause health checks on LBs to decide that the node was acceptable for traffic even though DR secondaries cannot handle normal Vault traffic. (In other words, the bool could only convey "yes" or "no" but not "not sure yet".) This has been replaced by replication_dr_mode and replication_perf_mode which are string values that convey the current state of the node; a value of disabled indicates that replication is disabled or the state is still being discovered. As a result, an LB check can positively verify that the node is both not disabled and is not a DR secondary, and avoid sending traffic to it if either is true.
  • PKI Secret Backend Roles parameter types: For ou and organization in role definitions in the PKI secret backend, input can now be a comma-separated string or an array of strings. Reading a role will now return arrays for these parameters.
  • Plugin API Changes: The plugin API has been updated to utilize golang's context.Context package. Many function signatures now accept a context object as the first parameter. Existing plugins will need to pull in the latest Vault code and update their function signatures to begin using context and the new gRPC transport.


  • gRPC Backend Plugins: Backend plugins now use gRPC for transport, allowing them to be written in other languages.
  • Brand New CLI: Vault has a brand new CLI interface that is significantly streamlined, supports autocomplete, and is almost entirely backwards compatible.
  • UI: PKI Secret Backend (Enterprise): Configure PKI secret backends, create and browse roles and certificates, and issue and sign certificates via the listed roles.


  • auth/aws: Handle IAM headers produced by clients that formulate numbers as ints rather than strings [GH-3763]
  • auth/okta: Support JSON lists when specifying groups and policies [GH-3801]
  • autoseal/hsm: Attempt reconnecting to the HSM on certain kinds of errors (Enterprise)
  • cli: Output password prompts to stderr to make it easier to pipe an output token to another command [GH-3782]
  • core: Report replication status in sys/health [GH-3810]
  • physical/s3: Allow using paths with S3 for non-AWS deployments [GH-3730]
  • physical/s3: Add ability to disable SSL for non-AWS deployments [GH-3730]
  • plugins: Args for plugins can now be specified separately from the command, allowing the same output format and input format for plugin information [GH-3778]
  • secret/pki: ou and organization can now be specified as a comma-separated string or an array of strings [GH-3804]
  • plugins: Plugins will fall back to using netrpc as the communication protocol on older versions of Vault [GH-3833]


  • auth/(approle,aws,cert): Fix behavior where periodic tokens generated by these backends could not have their TTL renewed beyond the system/mount max TTL value [GH-3803]
  • auth/aws: Fix error returned if bound_iam_principal_arn was given to an existing role update [GH-3843]
  • core/sealwrap: Speed improvements and bug fixes (Enterprise)
  • identity: Delete group alias when an external group is deleted [GH-3773]
  • legacymfa/duo: Fix intermittent panic when Duo could not be reached [GH-2030]
  • secret/database: Fix a location where a lock could potentially not be released, leading to deadlock [GH-3774]
  • secret/(all databases) Fix behavior where if a max TTL was specified but no default TTL was specified the system/mount default TTL would be used but not be capped by the local max TTL [GH-3814]
  • secret/database: Fix an issue where plugins were not closed properly if they failed to initialize [GH-3768]
  • ui: mounting a secret backend will now properly set max_lease_ttl and default_lease_ttl when specified - previously both fields set default_lease_ttl.
