Create a vault

This guide will help you access your first Skyflow vault. By the end of this guide, you’ll have used Skyflow Studio to access the Quickstart vault or create a custom vault.

Prerequisites

Before you start,

    Log in to your Skyflow account. If you don’t have an account, you can sign up for a free trial account.
      For trial accounts, log in to try.skyflow.com. For production accounts, log in to your dedicated sign in URL.

Overview

We recommend that you start by creating the Quickstart vault. This is the vault you'll use thoughtout many of our quickstart guides. Then you can come back at a later time to create your own custom vault.

If desired, you can create a custom vault and still follow along with this guide, but keep in mind that the example code may differ slightly from what you would use.

Create a vault

The Quickstart Vault is a vault template that is accessible from any Skyflow account. It is a simple vault designed to help you get started with Skyflow’s API.

If you have a trial account, you’ll see that a Quickstart vault has been created for you automatically. If you don’t see the Quickstart vault, you can create one from the Vault Dashboard by clicking Create Vault > Start With A Template > Quickstart > Create as shown below:

create_a_vault

Explore the vault

The Quickstart vault comes with a simple schema and some data already loaded for your convenience. Click Browse to open the vault.

Each vault contains tables. You'll see that the Quickstart vault has two: credit_cards and persons. Each table has its own data that falls inside of rows and columns.

Next steps

You've created your first vault!

Next, you'll learn how to generate an API bearer token to authenticate with the Skyflow API.
