Today Drone.io, the leading open source cloud native continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD) platform, is announcing the official integration with HashiCorp’s Vault secret manager which secures, stores, and tightly controls access to tokens, passwords, certificates, API keys, and other secrets in modern computing. This integration allows you to securely share secrets stored in Vault with your deployment pipelines.
Get Started using Drone.io with Vault
Get started by installing the 0.9 technology preview and by installing the Vault plugin. Once installed, the first step is to create a Vault secrets resource (below). For demonstration purposes, lets store our Docker registry credentials, used to publish images to Dockerhub.
The secret should be visible in the dashboard once successfully created. Note that you can add the
X-Drone-Events properties to limit which repositories and pipeline events have access to these secrets.
The next step is to reference the secrets in your
.drone.yml configuration file, in the secrets section. In the below example, the secret is referenced as
secret/data/docker is the path of the kv secret, and
username is the key.
pipeline: - publish: image: plugins/docker secrets: - docker_username - docker_password repo: octocat/server secrets: docker_username: external: name: secret/data/docker#username docker_password: external: name: secret/data/docker#password
