AWS Secrets Manager makes it easier to rotate secrets through CloudFormation, including secrets for Redshift clusters and DocumentDB databases

By GIXnews

Today, AWS Secrets Manager announced two changes that make it easier to rotate secrets automatically. First, customers can set up automatic rotation for Redshift clusters and DocumentDB instances via AWS CloudFormation easily. Customers can do this by using the SecretTargetAttachment resource to associate a Redshift cluster or Document DB instance with the corresponding secret created in Secrets Manager. Second, customers can set up rotation easily by specifying a serverless application. AWS will automatically create the Lambda function, IAM role, and IAM permissions needed to execute the rotation. To get started, view the CloudFormation examples to schedule secrets for rotation.
