How to manage a version of a secret

Reviewed on 13 February 2024Published on 21 February 2023

This page explains how to manage a secret version using the Scaleway console.

Before you start

To complete the actions presented below, you must have:

  • A Scaleway account logged into the console
  • Owner status or IAM permissions allowing you to perform actions in the intended Organization
  • Generated an API key and enabled the SecretManagerFullAccess permission set
  • Created a secret and one or more versions for it
  1. Click Secret Manager in the Security and Identity section of the Scaleway console side menu.
  2. Select the relevant region, in the Region drop-down.
  3. Access the relevant secret. Your secret’s Overview tab displays.
  4. Click the Versions tab. The versions of your secret display.
  5. Click «See more Icon» next to the version you want to manage.
  6. Click Disable to disable one specific version of your secret.
  7. Click «See more Icon» next to the version you have disabled, then click Enable to enable it.

    Keep in mind that updating a secret’s ephemeral policy impacts the secret’s disabled versions when you enable them again. If you have created a version with the previous ephemeral policy’s settings, disabled the version, and updated the ephemeral policy, the version will inherit its settings from those of the current policy when you enable it again.

  8. Click Copy version’s value to copy the value of your version.
  9. Click «More infos Icon» to see the value of your version.

Make sure that the version does not have the Single access ephemeral property.
