Ruby Client for the Secret Manager API

API Client library for the Secret Manager API

Secret Manager is a secure and convenient storage system for API keys, passwords, certificates, and other sensitive data. Secret Manager provides a central place and single source of truth to manage, access, and audit secrets across Google Cloud.

Actual client classes for the various versions of this API are defined in versioned client gems, with names of the form google-cloud-secret_manager-v*. The gem google-cloud-secret_manager is a convenience wrapper library that brings the verisoned gems in as dependencies, and provides high-level methods for constructing clients.

View the Client Library Documentation for this library, google-cloud-secret_manager, to see the convenience methods for constructing client objects. Reference documentation for the client objects themselves can be found in the client library documentation for the versioned client gems: google-cloud-secret_manager-v1, google-cloud-secret_manager-v1beta1.

See also the Product Documentation for more usage information.

Quick Start

$ gem install google-cloud-secret_manager

In order to use this library, you first need to go through the following steps:

  1. Select or create a Cloud Platform project.
  2. Enable billing for your project.
  3. Enable the API.
  4. Set up authentication.

Enabling Logging

To enable logging for this library, set the logger for the underlying gRPC library. The logger that you set may be a Ruby stdlib Logger as shown below, or a Google::Cloud::Logging::Logger that will write logs to Cloud Logging. See grpc/logconfig.rb and the gRPC spec_helper.rb for additional information.

Configuring a Ruby stdlib logger:

require "logger"

module MyLogger
  LOGGER = $stderr, level: Logger::WARN
  def logger

# Define a gRPC module-level logger method before grpc/logconfig.rb loads.
module GRPC
  extend MyLogger

Supported Ruby Versions

This library is supported on Ruby 2.4+.

Google provides official support for Ruby versions that are actively supported by Ruby Core—that is, Ruby versions that are either in normal maintenance or in security maintenance, and not end of life. Currently, this means Ruby 2.4 and later. Older versions of Ruby may still work, but are unsupported and not recommended. See for details about the Ruby support schedule.
