Static Secrets

Static secrets are key/value pairs that you create and update manually, such as passwords and API tokens. Any text-based items can be stored within their original format, including config files, JSON and yaml, etc.

The typical flow for working with static secrets is:

  1. Create a Static Secret: Get started by defining the name and value of the static secret.

  2. Add a Static Secret to an Access Role: Enable clients to access
    the static secret by adding it to a role, with the appropriate permissions.

  3. Get a Static Secret Value: Get the value of a static secret when you need it.

If required, you can update a static secret value, or create multiple versions of a static secret. See Update and Version Static Secrets.

  1. Sharing Static Secrets: to temporarily share with external users that are not part of your organization or who don't have access permission to those items in general.

When a static secret becomes obsolete, you can delete it.
