How to Delete a Secret in Kubernetes

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
Code language: Bash (bash)

This will produce an output similar to:

NAME TYPE DATA AGE admin-user-pass Opaque 2 11s
Code language: Bash (bash)

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

Deleting a Secret in Kubernetes

kubectl delete secret admin-user-pass
