Environment Secrets

If you want to pass a secret to a component (for example a terraform module) you can create a secret using settings page and then reference it in the environment YAML.

Similar to AWS secrets, there are 3 scopes to which these secrets can be added, company, team, environment. By default, CloudKnit tries to find secrets at environment level, then at team level and lastly at company level.

To add a secret, go to the appropriate scope and click on the Add button.


Once added these secrets can be used in the secrets property of the environment YAML as below.


  - name: bucket      # Terraform variable name
    key: s3-name      # Secret Id
    scope: company    # Should be one of: company, team, environment
