Define, manage, and use connection secrets to set up sources.
A secret in Y42 is the link between the platform and the third-party service from which you wish to ingest data. For instance, you may need to create a secret to pull data from your PostgreSQL database or Facebook Marketing account. This process involves granting Y42 access permission to log into your database or access your data through a read-only user.
When setting up a secret, you will need to provide the following properties:
- Name: A unique identifier referenced in the definition of a source object.
- Type: The third-party service you wish to connect to.
- Restrictions: The assets/sources permitted to use the secret.
- Location: The storage location of your secret.
- Type settings: Specific details associated with the secret type.
Secrets can be created either by using the Secret Manager or through the Source creation flow.
Secrets can be updated either by using the Secret Manager or directly in the Source creation flow.
