Create and use azureFileShare secretName

This document (000020925) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


AzureFileShare satisfies the Persistent Volume Claim requirements.  To protect the AzureFile credentials, controller.azureFileShare.secretName references a secret.  This article demonstrates how to create the secret and links to Microsoft documentation describing the process.

Three helm parameters apply to using AzureFile.

controller.azureFileShare.enabledIf true, enable the usage of an existing or statically provisioned Azure File Sharefalse
controller.azureFileShare.secretNameThe name of the secret containing the Azure file share storage account name and keynil
controller.azureFileShare.shareNameThe name of the Azure file share to usenil

The above Helm parameters become the following lines in the controller deployment YAML under the volumes section.

secretName: azure-secret
shareName: ShareName

The secretName parameter origin is not apparent but is created from Azure Storage Account Name and Storage Key.  Below is an example kubectl command (Variable replacement required.)

kubectl create secret generic azure-secret --from-literal=azurestorageaccountname=$AKS_PERS_STORAGE_ACCOUNT_NAME --from-literal=azurestorageaccountkey=$STORAGE_KEY -n neuvector
