aws secrets manager sink AWS Secrets Manager Sink

Provided by: "Apache Software Foundation"

Support Level for this Kamelet is: "Stable"

Create a secret in AWS Secrets Manager.

Access Key/Secret Key are the basic method for authenticating to the AWS Secrets Manager Service. These parameters are optional because the Kamelet provides the 'useDefaultCredentialsProvider'.

When using a default Credentials Provider the Secrets Manager client will load the credentials through this provider and won’t use the static credential. This is reason for not having the access key and secret key as mandatory parameter for this Kamelet.

The Kamelet expects the following headers to be set:

  • secret-name / ce-secret-name: as the secret name to create.

If the header won’t be set the exchange ID will be used as secret name.

At runtime, the aws-secrets-manager-sink Kamelet relies upon the presence of the following dependencies:

  • camel:core

  • camel:aws-secrets-manager

  • camel:kamelet

Camel JBang usage


  • You’ve installed JBang.

  • You have executed the following command:

jbang app install camel@apache/camel

Supposing you have a file named route.yaml with this content:

- route:
      uri: "kamelet:timer-source"
        period: 10000
        message: 'test'
        - to:
            uri: "kamelet:aws-secrets-manager-sink"

You can now run it directly through the following command

camel run route.yaml
