Secrets policies is used to provide environment specific secrets for your applications. For example, if you have an application that uses a database and you want to enable different secrets in different environments, e.g. Development vs Production, you can use the Config Map policy to provide the secrets instead of creating and managing different application manifests. This makes your application manifests more portable.
Creating a Secret Policy
To create a secret policy, you need to provide:
- Rank: Specifies the order in which this policy is processed
- Name: Name of the policy
- Application Selector: Selects the application to which this policy will be applied
- Data: Secret key/value pairs that should be added to your application.
