External Secrets Operator

External Secrets Operator is a Kubernetes operator that integrates external secret management systems like AWS Secrets Manager, HashiCorp Vault, Google Secrets Manager, Azure Key Vault and many more. The operator reads information from external APIs and automatically injects the values into a Kubernetes Secret.

Usage

The External Secrets Operator can be deployed by enabling the add-on via the following.

enable_external_secrets = true

You can optionally customize the Helm chart that deploys the operator via the following configuration.

  enable_external_secrets = true
  external_secrets_helm_config = {
    name                       = "external-secrets"
    chart                      = "external-secrets"
    repository                 = "https://charts.external-secrets.io/"
    version                    = "0.5.6"
    namespace                  = "external-secrets"
  }
