GCP Secret Manager

Detailed information on the GCP Secret Manager secret store component

This document shows how to enable GCP Secret Manager secret store using [Dapr Secrets Component./../concepts/secrets/README.md) for self hosted and Kubernetes mode.

Setup GCP Secret Manager instance

Setup GCP Secret Manager using the GCP documentation: https://cloud.google.com/secret-manager/docs/quickstart.

Setup Dapr component

apiVersion: dapr.io/v1alpha1
kind: Component
  name: gcpsecretmanager
  namespace: default
  type: secretstores.gcp.secretmanager
  - name: type
    value: service_account
  - name: project_id
    value: project_111
  - name: private_key_id
    value: *************
  - name: client_email
    value: name@domain.com
  - name: client_id
    value: '1111111111111111'
  - name: auth_uri
    value: https://accounts.google.com/o/oauth2/auth
  - name: token_uri
    value: https://oauth2.googleapis.com/token
  - name: auth_provider_x509_cert_url
    value: https://www.googleapis.com/oauth2/v1/certs
  - name: client_x509_cert_url
    value: https://www.googleapis.com/robot/v1/metadata/x509/<project-name>.iam.gserviceaccount.com
  - name: private_key
    value: PRIVATE KEY

Apply the component

To run locally, create a components dir containing the YAML file and provide the path to the dapr run command with the flag --components-path.

To deploy in Kubernetes, save the file above to gcp_secret_manager.yaml and then run:

kubectl apply -f gcp_secret_manager.yaml


This example shows you how to take the Redis password from the GCP Secret Manager secret store. Here, you created a secret named redisPassword in GCP Secret Manager. Note its important to set it both as the name and key properties.

apiVersion: dapr.io/v1alpha1
kind: Component
  name: statestore
  namespace: default
  type: state.redis
  - name: redisHost
    value: "[redis]:6379"
  - name: redisPassword
      name: redisPassword
      key: redisPassword
    secretStore: gcpsecretmanager
