Vault operation is hard enough already, let alone with needing to add new applications, new policies, new databases... But if I automate my secrets, that defeats the purpose of storing it securely in vault.  This class aims to show some simple ways of adding automation to your vault operation to help reduce operator toil and give a standardized way of having developers add new applications via a GitOps flow.
In this Kubernetes Master Class, you'll learn about:
  • Securely storing vault setup and restore scripts
  • Simple GitOps workflow for developers to add new applications and policies
  • Managing secret automation securely
