Kubernetes Secrets are a good way to deliver sensitive data to the applications running in the cluster. SchemaHero supports reading parameters from secrets, using a syntax that's familiar to anyone who's written Kubernetes pods specs before.
To set up a connection to a postgres database using a connection URI stored in a secret:
apiVersion: databases.schemahero.io/v1alpha3 kind: Database metadata: name: my-pg connection: postgres: uri: valueFrom: secretKeyRef: name: postgres key: uri
The above custom resource assumes that a postgres secret with a uri key was already deployed, like this:
apiversion: v1 kind: Secret metadata: name: postgres data: uri: cG9zdGdyZXM6Ly9zY2hlbWFoZXJvOnBhc3N3b3JkQHBvc3RncmVzOjU0MzIvZ2l0aHVi
