Databases are not the first thing to think of when containers are mentioned, but is that changing? Yes. Why not. This can help reduce cost and helping for increasing flexibility. There is a lot of documentation on how to do this with Postgres and MySQL, but what about Oracle? So I recently had a tasker work with an application that utilized an Oracle DB and need to create a Shift left approach in development.

Static Keys are trouble as well as very difficult to manage. For that key rotation is needed. This article will explain how to set up Key rotation within the Hashicorp Vault for AWS Gov Cloud.

You can also apply this same setup for any region if needed as well.

Review a list of users by running;
argocd account list

I like to write articles that will help others spend less time finding information. In this case, I spent quite some time trying to figure out how exactly I needed to configure the Ambassador API Gateway Mappings in order for the ArgoCD Command Line Interface (CLI) to communicate.
