Retrieve a name and get a secret's value

This example demonstrates how to delete the first secret stored in the Secrets Manager. First we retrieve the ID of the secret using the listSecretInfo() function. Then we get the value of the secret using the retrieved ID.

Copy Code
1import { secrets } from 'wix-secrets-backend.v2';

3export function getFirstSecretValue() {
4 return secrets.listSecretInfo()
5 .then((secrets) => {
6 return secrets.getSecretValue(secrets[0].name);
7 })
8 .catch((error) => {
9 console.error(error);
10 });

Get an API key and use it to fetch a JSON from a weather service

In this example, we use the Secrets API to get an API key from the Secrets Manager. We use the key in the backend to fetch a JSON with weather information from a 3rd-party service, and return the JSON to the frontend.

Get an API key and use it to send an email with the SendGrid npm interface

In this example, we added the SendGrid package to our site using the Package Manager. We created a backend function that gets an API key from the Secrets Manager, sets it as the SendGrid API key, and sends an email using the SendGrid service. We call the function from the client side when a site visitor submits email information via a form.
