How to create a folder and a secret

Note:

If you have no resources yet in Secret Manager, you can create a folder during secret creation.

  1. Click Secret Manager in the Security and Identity section of the Scaleway console side menu.

  2. Click + Create secret.

  3. Choose the region in which you want to store your folder and your secret.

    Important:

    Folders and secrets cannot be moved from one region to another after creation.

  4. Select Create a new path and enter /, followed by a name for your folder.

    Important:

    A path is the directory structure to access your folders and secrets. Each path must be prefixed with a slash.

  5. Enter a name for your secret and add tags (optional).

  6. Add your secret manually or import it from a file.

    Note:

    The maximum file size for your secret is 64 KiB.

  7. Click Create secret. The Overview tab of your secret displays.

    Note:
    • You have created a folder and a secret on the go, located in the / path of the selected region.
    • The value of your secret is stored in its first version, which is enabled by default. At creation, your secret only has one version. Keep reading our quickstart to find out how to add more versions to your secret.
  8. Click Back to Secrets to display your folder and its contents.

    Tip:
