    External Secrets Operator reads information from a third-party service like AWS Secrets Manager and automatically injects the values as Kubernetes Secrets.

    Your ask is unclear but I think you're looking for something like

  • argocd-vault-plugin

    An Argo CD plugin to retrieve secrets from Secret Management tools and inject them into Kubernetes secrets

    We’re using which allows you to define secrets in git (works with more backends than just hashicorp vault despite the name). The documentation took me a bit to figure out, but so far it works.

  • argocd-lovely-plugin

    A plugin to make Argo CD behave like we'd like.

  • kubernetes-secret-generator

    Kubernetes controller for automatically generating and updating secrets

    If your secret are not necessarily to be known prior deployment I use this plugin

  • terratest

    Terratest is a Go library that makes it easier to write automated tests for your infrastructure code.

    I've ported all my helm charts as terraform modules, because they'd require a ton of customization anyway to replace all the kube-webhook-certgen jobs with the respective cert-manager annotations, I also prefer to sprinkle everything with terratest suites for every tf module.

  • InfluxDB

    Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.. InfluxDB is the Time Series Platform where developers build real-time applications for analytics, IoT and cloud-native services. Easy to start, it is available in the cloud or on-premises.
