Storage of Secrets and Ingestions in DataHub UI Containers

Original Slack Thread

Hey all! I have one quick question regarding the secrets and ingestion recipes, on the ingestions set via the UI. Where are the secrets and ingestions stored? Are they stored in the database? Or just in the frontend container? How are the secrets stored ?
Thank you :slightly_smiling_face:

<@U05CJD391ND> might know the answer

From the ingestion perspective, the password is provided as environmental variables for say, the SQL source for example recipe : (mssql password)

If you are looking for Datahub installation passwords, they are part of the respective deployment method. You can see which deployment method you intend to use from here:

So the secrets are only stored on the containers right? Not in the Database?

Correct, no secrets in the database

Thank you!
