Kubernetes ConfigMaps and Secrets: Guide to Create and Update

For applications to be portable, an application’s configuration will change between environments. So, we should try to keep the configuration out of the container image with our Docker containers.

➤ ConfigMaps

A ConfigMap affords a method to include non-sensitive data information in your deployment. A configmap contains information in key-value pairs. However, the values can also be entire config files or JSON blobs to store more information.

➤ Secrets

A secret affords a method to include sensitive configuration data, such as passwords or SSH keys, to your deployment. Ans anyone who is authorized to your project can also view your secrets; be sure that you know that this information can be shared with those users. Secrets also hold information in key-value pairs.
