Reference of AzureKeyVaultSecret custom resource definition

The AzureKeyVaultSecret is defined using this schema:

apiVersion: spv.no/v1alpha1
kind: AzureKeyVaultSecret
  name: < name for azure key vault secret>
  namespace: <namespace for azure key vault secret>
    name: <name of azure key vault>
      name: <name of azure key vault object to sync>
      type: <object type in azure key vault to sync>
      version: <optional - version of object to sync>
      contentType: <only used when type is the special multi-key-value-secret - either application/x-json or application/x-yaml>
  output: # ignored by env injector, required by controller to output kubernetes secret
      name: <name of the kubernetes secret to create>
      dataKey: <required when type is opaque - name of the kubernetes secret data key to assign value to - ignored for all other types>
      type: <optional - kubernetes secret type - defaults to opaque>

Note - the output is only used by the Controller to create the Azure Key Vault secret as a Kubernetes native Secret - it is ignored and not needed by the Env Injector.

Kubernetes Secret Types

The default secret type (spec.output.secret.type) is opaque. Below is a list of supported Kubernetes secret types and which keys each secret type stores.

For a complete list, see core/v1/types.go in the Kubernetes GitHub repository.

Secret typeKeys
opaque (default)defined in spec.output.secret.dataKey
kubernetes.io/tlstls.key, tls.crt
kubernetes.io/basic-authusername, password

With the exception of the opaque secret type, the Controller will make a best effort to export the Azure Key Vault object into the secret type defined.


By pointing to a exportable Certificate object in Azure Key Vault AND setting the Kubernetes output secret type to kubernetes.io/tls, the controller will automatically format the Kubernetes secret accordingly both for pem and pfx certificates.


Requires a well formatted docker config stored in a Secret object like this:

  "auths": {
    "some.azurecr.io": {
      "username": "someuser",
      "password": "somepassword",
      "email": "someuser@spv.no",
      "auth": "c29tZXVzZXI6c29tZXBhc3N3b3JkCg=="

If the "auth" property is not included, the controller will generate it.


The controller support two formats. Either username:password or pre-encoded with base64: dXNlcm5hbWU6cGFzc3dvcmQ= stored in a Secret object.


This must be a properly formatted Private SSH Key stored in a Secret object.

Vault Object Types

Object typeDescription
secretAzure Key Vault Secret - can contain any secret data
certificateAzure Key Vault Certificate - A TLS certificate with just the public key or both public and private key if exportable
keyAzure Key Vault Key - A RSA or EC key used for signing
multi-key-value-secretA special kind of Azure Key Vault Secret only understood by the Controller and the Env Injector. For cases where a secret contains json or yaml key/value items that will be directly exported as key/value items in the Kubernetes secret, or access with queries in the Evn Injector. When multi-key-value-secret type is used, the contentType property MUST also be set to either application/x-json or application/x-yaml.
