Recovery scenario samples for Azure Key Vault using the Azure Node SDK

This sample repo includes sample code demonstrating the soft delete, recovery and backup/restore features of Key Vault.


  • node.js 8+
  • An Azure Service Principal for running the sample on your Azure account. You can create an Azure service principal using one of the following guides:


  1. If you don't have it, install node.js
  2. Set the following environment variables using the information from your service principal. export AZURE_SUBSCRIPTION_ID={your subscription id} export AZURE_CLIENT_ID={your client id} export AZURE_CLIENT_SECRET={your client secret} export AZURE_TENANT_ID={your tenant id as a GUID} export AZURE_CLIENT_OID={Object id of the service principal} > On Windows, use set instead of export.

  3. Clone the repo, install node packages, and run (the backup/restore and soft delete/recover samples live in two separate files) git clone key-vault cd key-vault npm install node backup_restore_sample.js node soft_delete_recovery_sample.js

What does this sample do?

For backup and restore, in backup_restore_sample.js, the entry point is the method runSample which runs the following: ``` async runSample() { var self = this;

      // Authenticate to Key Vault and set up our Key Vault Client and Management Client
      await self._authenticate(); 

      // Create two key vaults for sample purposes
      self._firstVault = await self._createVault();
      self._secondVault = await self._createVault();

      // Run our individual backup and restore samples now that setup is complete
      await self.backupRestoreKey(); // backup key from vault 1; restore to vault 2
      await self.backupRestoreSecret(); // backup a secret from vault 1; restore to vault 2
      await self.backupRestoreCertificate(); // backup a secret from vault 1; restore to vault 2

For soft delete and recovery, in `soft_delete_recovery_sample.js`, we similarly see:

async runSample() { var self = this;

  await self._authenticate();         // authenticate to the key vault service
  await self._precreateVaults();      // create sample vaults
  await self.deletedVaultRecovery();  // demonstrate deleting and recovering vaults
  await self.deletedSecretRecovery(); // demonstrate deleting and recovering secrets 
  await self._cleanupSampleVaults();  // clean up our sample vaults

} ```
