OrchidE Version 2023.1.5: Support for Ansible configuration setting vault_password_file.

OrchidE 2023.1.5

OrchidE 2023.1.5 supports the Ansible configuration to decrypt Ansible vaults and includes fixes for IntelliJ EAP version 2024.2.

Decrypting Ansible vaults using the Ansible configuration vault_password_file

To decrypt Ansible vaults, an Ansible configuration file ‘ansible.cfg’ can be specified. OrchidE will use the settings entry ‘vault_password_file’, to read the password and decrypt Ansible vaults.

OrchidE supports the reading of plain text password files. Executable files are not supported.

When environment variables are used in the ‘ansible.cfg’, a simple variable substitution is performed, advanced shell variable processing is not supported. To be able to use environment variables, they must be known to the IntelliJ platform process.

The Ansible configuration file setting can be found in Settings Languages & Frameworks OrchidE.


Support for IntelliJ platform 2022.3 is deprecated and will end with the launch of the EAP for IntelliJ version 2024.3.
