I started a thread over here not so long ago, and got no bites at all.
Not sure if that was because this is not on anyone’s radar or its something no one encounters, or cares about, or perhaps there are already well-known solution that are deployed to resolve? hard to tell.
In the meantime, we embarked on resolving our problems in this area and it turns out we have a rather elegant solution for resolving this problem that could be a general mechanism for any ServiceStack deployment.
Now that we have that deployed live, I just wanted to circle back here and see if there is any appetite or interest from this community for us to share a general solution that others could use to solve this problem themselves. Perhaps as an extension to the core ServiceStack framework, or as a new plugin.
Without getting in the weeds at this stage about how it all works under the covers, would there be any interest in this community in a solution that allows you to extend
AppSettings, to read secrets in your config files from a secure store (e.g. Azure Key Vault, Amazon KMS or Vault, or your own custom store/service etc) with minimal setup, no extra coding (just add a plugin to your AppHost) and without disrupting local development flows?
Anyone interested in that?
