Secrets

Last updated 24 days ago

Koyeb Secrets allow secure storage and usage of sensitive information like password or API tokens. The secrets feature can be used in stacks and need to be used to connect 3rd party stores.

You can use secrets to store:

  • databases or APIs access credentials,
  • third-party provider credentials,
  • reusable configuration variables.

All secret values are automatically encrypted server side to ensure secure storage. To prevent unauthorized access, Secrets access need to be explicitly granted in Stack functions.
