To use AWS Secrets Manager with a Node.js Docker container running on Elastic Beanstalk, you can follow these steps:
- First, create a secret in AWS Secrets Manager and store the secret value that you want to use in your Node.js application.
- Next, create a new Elastic Beanstalk environment and choose “Docker” as the platform.
- In the configuration for your environment, under the “Software” section, add a new container with your Node.js application.
- In the “Container Options” section, add a new option to specify the command that will be run when the container starts. This command should retrieve the secret from AWS Secrets Manager and store it in an environment variable that can be accessed by your Node.js application.
- When you deploy your application to Elastic Beanstalk, the container will be started with the command that you specified, and the secret will be stored in an environment variable that your Node.js application can access.
Here is an example of a command that you can use to retrieve a secret from AWS Secrets Manager and store it in an environment variable:
aws secretsmanager get-secret-value --secret-id my-secret | jq -r .SecretString | jq -r .password > /tmp/secrets echo "export MY_SECRET=$(cat /tmp/secrets)" >> /etc/environment
This command retrieves the secret with the identifier “my-secret” from AWS Secrets Manager and stores the secret value in a file called
/tmp/secrets. It then exports the secret value as an environment variable called
