I’m new to chef and started to use encrypted data bags to store sensitive information.
In this case I’m storing the mysql password.
Workstation: Windows 10 x64 with ChefDK (Version 1.0.3)
knife.rb: knife[:editor] = “notepad”
I created the vault using this command
knife vault create credentials mysql --admins "cadmin,node1" --mode client -J data_bags/credentials/mysql.json
Verified content using this command
knife vault show credentials mysql
Now I would like to change the stored password.
According to the documentation I should use this command:
knife vault edit [vault] [item]
knife vault edit credentials mysql
This opens my default editor (notepad) and I can change the password.
However: After hitting ‘save’ and closing notepad the change doesn’t get saved
knife vault show credentials mysql results in the same values as before.
The only waring I get is:
WARN: Auto inflation of JSON data is deprecated. Please pass in the class to inflate or use #edit_hash at C:/opscode/chefdk/embedded/lib/ruby/2.3.0/forwardable.rb:189:in `edit_data’
Any ideas what I’m missing?
Thanks in advance.
