As an administrator, you need to:

  • First set up HashiCorp Vault and create the relevant secrets, in this case, the signing keys, and store them in the vault.

  • Configure the connector to vault from the JFrog Platform using the REST API or JFrog Platform.

  • Provide the path and ID of the secrets for the relevant keys using the REST APIs or JFrog Platform to reference the signing keys from vault to the JFrog Platform.
