In computer networks, clients are pieces of hardware or software that authenticate to and use a server. The server, in turn, is another computer system that provides the service the client requests. Clients can be virtual or physical and exist on many computer systems, including one that’s physically separate. However, the clients connect to the server through the network.

A client can be defined as any application, service, or user. The Vault API can be used to configure the number of clients for each cluster. A client may be configured with multiple certificates for a cluster. Clients can also be configured to specify the format of output. Currently, the output formats supported by the HashiCorp Vault API are xml, json, and yaml.
