A query tool for HashiCorp Vault.

Allows users to query:

  1. Vault Alias and view
    • All Vault Groups they are a part of
    • All Vault Roles they have
    • All Vault Policies they have attached to them (and how they are attached)
    • All Vault Paths they can access along with the capabilities they have for that path (also which policy allows them access to that path)
  2. Vault Path and view
    • All the Vault Aliases that have access to the path along with the capabiliites and which policies grant them access.


Environment variables

You need to set the following environment variables

export VAULT_ADDR="a vault addr"
export VAULT_TOKEN="a vault token"
export VAULT_NAMESPACE="a vault namespace"  # You only need to use this if you use the CLI to query vault directly

export GITHUB_ACCESS_TOKEN="a github personal access token"
export REDIS_ADDR="redis address"
export REST_ADDR="REST API address"

YAML file

You need to add a config.yaml file in a config folder. So the file path from the root directory is config/config.yaml. A sample config is provided below

namespaces:                                                             # Namespaces you want plutus to cover
  - <example-namespace>
uiAddress: "localhost:4200?baseURL=localhost:8000"                      # UI redirect that can be used to redirect to the proper UI address
  baseURL: ""                  # Github Enterprise Reader API base URL
  groupsRepoPath: "/path/to/repo"                                       # Github Enterprise Repo that has the groups information

Make sure that the files in github.groupsRepoPath folder are of type <group-name>-groups.yaml and look like the following

name: group-name
description: ""
  type: "Security"
  reason: "Access"
  attributes: []
  - person-a
  - person-b

As of now, only the Enterprise Github Groups Reader is supported but more can be added easily. Look at the group-reader package

How to run

Running locally (Docker)

To run the REST API:

  1. Run docker build . -t plutus:dev to build the image locally.
  2. Run docker-compose up

To run the UI:

  1. Clone the PlutusUI repo(unpublished)
  2. Run ng serve in the root directory for the PlutusUI repo

Running locally (Binary)

  1. Run go build -o plutus to generate the executable binary
  2. Run ./plutus s to start the REST API server


All packages have READMEs in them that can be read to learn more about them.


Plutus is the Greek god of wealth and so will know exactly where to look in a vault!
