Secrets in Code

You can use the Secret object in your JSON code when you do not want to expose confidential information in the source (for example, the password field in a Connection Profile). The syntax below enables you to reference a named secret as defined in the Control-M vault. To learn how to manage secrets, see section Configuring Secrets. The value of the secret is resolved during deployment.

The following syntax is used to reference a secret. 

"<parameter>" :  {"Secret": "<secret name>"}

The following example shows how to use secrets in code:

    "Type": "ConnectionProfile:Hadoop",
    "Hive": {
        "Host": "hiveServer",
        "Principal": "a@bc",
        "Port": "1024",
        "User": "emuser",
        "Password": {"Secret": "hive_dev_secret"}
