How to retrieve SecretsManager secret in AWS CDK


I’m setting up a Fargate service in AWS using CDK

How am I supposed to get hold of the ISecret instance given the name of the secret?

I’ve looked at the AWS.SecretsManager from the AWS SDK, but it only returns strings.


Currently there is no Secret.fromSecretName-method. Assuming that you are using an existing secret, you should use the Secret.fromSecretArn-method.

Note that if you use a KMS key, you should use the Secret.fromSecretAttributes-method as described at Get a value from AWS secrets manager.
