Keyring Secret Store

The keyring store enables Spice to access secrets from the secure/credential store of the host operating system:

  • Linux: The secret-service and kernel keyutils.
  • macOS: The keychain.
  • Windows: The Credential Manager.

The Keyring Store will read entries for names formatted as spice_secret_<secret-name> and where the entry account or user is set to spiced.

Note: For compatibility with Spice secret objects, secret values are required to be stored as JSON strings, as the keyring store only supports string values.


For setting spiceai api key secret using macOS keychain, create new keychain entry, with following JSON string value

"{ key: "<your app api key>" }"

Then set store field of the secrets section in the Spicepod manifest:

store: keyring
