Before You Begin

Step 1: Configure Secrets Manager

  1. Select your Account or Organization or Project.
  2. Select Connectors in Setup.
  3. Create new Connector. The Connectors page appears.
  4. Select a Secret Manager type under Secret Managers. See:
  1. Provide the account access information for the new secrets manager.
  2. If you choose to set this secrets manager as the default, select Use as Default Secrets Manager.
  3. Click Finish.

When a new Default Secrets Manager is set up, only new Cloud Provider and/Connector secret fields are encrypted and stored in the new Default Secrets Manager. Existing Cloud Providers and Connectors created before the change are unaffected.

Where is the Secret for the Secret Manager Stored?

Harness stores all your secrets in your Secret Manager.

The secret you use to connect Harness to your Secrets Manager (password, etc) is stored in the Harness Default Secret Manager.
