Hi, I am Akshay Rao currently working in Annotation.i this blog I tried to manage secrets like username and password using kubectl.
Sensitive information, such as login credentials used by Pods to access services, is kept in a Secret object. A Secret might be required, for instance, to keep track of the username and password required to access a database.
I am using minikube and Base64 to encode the secrets.
Create and encode a Secret
first encode the raw data then encode with base64 and put it in a file.
Decode a secret
Edit and delete the secret
kubectl kubectl edit secrets "secret name"
kubectl delete secret "secret name"
In this all the basic operation on secrets in kubernetes are shown, i hope it helps you.
