Get a Secrets Manager secret value using the Go Amazon SDK

In applications, you can retrieve your secrets by calling GetSecretValue or BatchGetSecretValuein any of the Amazon SDKs. However, we recommend that you cache your secret values by using client-side caching. Caching secrets improves speed and reduces your costs.

For Go applications, use the Secrets Manager Go-based caching component or call the SDK directly with GetSecretValue or BatchGetSecretValue.

The following code example shows how to get a Secrets Manager secret value.

Required permissions: secretsmanager:GetSecretValue

// Use this code snippet in your app. // If you need more information about configurations or implementing the sample code, visit the AWS docs: // import ( "context" "log" "" "" "" ) func main() { secretName := "<<{{MySecretName}}>>" region := "<<{{MyRegionName}}>>" config, err := config.LoadDefaultConfig(context.TODO(), config.WithRegion(region)) if err != nil { log.Fatal(err) } // Create Secrets Manager client svc := secretsmanager.NewFromConfig(config) input := &secretsmanager.GetSecretValueInput{ SecretId: aws.String(secretName), VersionStage: aws.String("AWSCURRENT"), // VersionStage defaults to AWSCURRENT if unspecified } result, err := svc.GetSecretValue(context.TODO(), input) if err != nil { // For a list of exceptions thrown, see // https://<<{{DocsDomain}}>>/secretsmanager/latest/apireference/API_GetSecretValue.html log.Fatal(err.Error()) } // Decrypts secret using the associated KMS key. var secretString string = *result.SecretString // Your code goes here. }
