Where Should I Start?

INTRO
When I first started using Conjur I was very confused and lost, but quickly found my way. I’m going to use my experiences learning Conjur, to help you. Here, I will be sharing some guides and documentation that helped me get over the learning curve. I know using Conjur to secure all of the secrets in your project can seem like a daunting task, but with a little guidance, it is very simple.

GET STARTED
The very first place you should look is the Get Started page. This page will help set you up with your very own Conjur instance. You can use this to experiment, and learn during the rest of the tutorials/documents until you get a grasp on it.
(It’s also very easy to delete and rebuild a fresh copy of this instance)

POLICY
The next thing to do is get familiar with reading and writing policies. There are a few useful resources for policies.

REST API
Using a REST API client was very critical in helping me learn Conjur’s API calls. The visual representation by the client went a long way for me, compared to reading pages of shell scripts and documentation. I am a very visual learner, so being able to see and experiment with the API calls helped a lot.

Good Luck!
