Once you have a secret in Kubernetes, if you know it’s name, you can delete it.

How to find the secret name

You can get the secret name as follows:

kubectl get secrets

This will produce an output similar to:

NAME                  TYPE                                  DATA      AGE
admin-user-pass       Opaque                                2         11s

Now that we have the secret name, we can delete the secret

Deleting a Secret in Kubernetes
