Read Secret from Azure Key Vault using Key Vault Rest API through Postman


In the previous posts, we saw how to register an Azure AD app and read the secret from Azure Key Vault using SecretClient and UsernamePasswordCredential class

In this post, we’d fetch the secret saved in Key Vault through Postman.

  • Register an Azure AD App
  • Copy its client id and client secret
  • Provide the Get Secret permissions to the application for the Key Vault.

Within Postman we’d first fetch the token

Get the URL from endpoints

Format – https://login.microsoftonline.com/{tenantid}/oauth2/v2.0/token

Scope value – https://vault.azure.net/.default

Send the request which responds with the token.

Copy the token

Create the new Get request and pass the Secret identifier with the API version.

https://mykvcrm.vault.azure.net/secrets/MySecret/f046535ef5644ca5a4b43f2a718776b9?api-version=7.1

For authorization select type as Bearer Token and paste the token generated earlier.

Send the request to get the secret’s value as shown below – “itissecret”

Hope it helps..
