25.3. Getting Help for Vault Commands

To display all commands used to manage vaults and vault containers:
$ ipa help vault
To display detailed help for a particular command, add the --help option to the command:
$ ipa vault-add --help

Vault Commands Fail with vault not found Error

Some commands require you to specify the owner or the type of the vault using the following options:
  • --user or --service specify the owner of the vault you want to view
    $ ipa vault-show user_vault --user user
  • --shared specify that the vault you want to view is a shared vault
For example, if you attempt to view another user's vault without adding --user, IdM informs you it did not find the vault:
[admin@server ~]$ ipa vault-show user_vault
ipa: ERROR: user_vault: vault not found
