Sample Flow

Follow this general procedure for working with API keys or other secrets using the Secrets Manager:

  1. Get private information such as an API key from a 3rd-party service.
  2. Store the private information as a new secret in the Secrets Manager in your site's dashboard or with the createSecret() function. Assign a name to the secret.
  3. In your backend code, instead of hardcoding the API key, use the getSecret() function with the secret name assigned in the Secrets Manager. When the code runs, the value of the secret is extracted from the Secrets Manager.
