Configuration Data

Overview

As a Kubernetes system, your server store configuration data in configmaps and secrets which can then be accessed by your containers.

When these settings need to be accessed by the system administrators, they can be accessed through the server management CLI as well.

Because secrets tend to store more sensitive data, access to them through the server management CLI is restricted to root users.

NOTE: this is purely a management CLI restriction. Any user in the management group can always run /path/to/your/executable raw kubectl to access the servers
