You can retrieve a static secret value directly from the Akeyless CLI or from the Akeyless Console.

You can also retrieve static secret values directly from within a context you choose, such as from Kubernetes, Jenkins, Azure, or another of our integrations, or with the help of any of our SDKs. For details, see Akeyless Vault Plugins and SDKs.

Retrieve a Static Secret Value from the Akeyless CLI

Let’s retrieve a static secret value using the Akeyless CLI. If you’d prefer, see how to do this from the Akeyless Console instead.

The CLI command to retrieve a static secret value is:

$ akeyless get-secret-value --name <secret name> --version <version number>
<secret value>

where:

  • name: The name of the static secret whose value to retrieve.
  • version: Optional, the version number of the secret value to retrieve. If you do not include this argument, the latest version of the secret value will be retrieved.

For example, to retrieve the value of the MyFirstSecret static secret, type:

$ akeyless get-secret-value --name MyFirstSecret
Qw3rty%21

Retrieve a Static Secret Value from the Akeyless Console

Let’s retrieve a static secret value from the Akeyless Console. If you’d prefer, see how to do this from the Akeyless CLI instead.

  1. Log in to the Akeyless Console and go to Secrets & Keys.

  2. Select the static secret.

  3. By default, the secret value is encrypted in the Value field. To the right of the Value field, select the eye icon.
    The decrypted secret value appears.
