AWS SSM Parameter Store Secrets Backend
To enable SSM parameter store, specify :py:class:``
as the ``backend`` in ``[secrets]`` section of ``airflow.cfg``.
Here is a sample configuration:
.. code-block:: ini
backend =
backend_kwargs = {"connections_prefix": "/airflow/connections", "variables_prefix": "/airflow/variables", "profile_name": "default"}
Optional lookup
Optionally connections, variables, or config may be looked up exclusive of each other or in any combination.
This will prevent requests being sent to AWS SSM Parameter Store for the excluded type.
If you want to look up some and not others in AWS SSM Parameter Store you may do so by setting the relevant ``*_prefix`` parameter of the ones to be excluded as ``null``.
For example, if you want to set parameter ``connections_prefix`` to ``"/airflow/connections"`` and not look up variables, your configuration file should look like this:
.. code-block:: ini
backend =
backend_kwargs = {"connections_prefix": "/airflow/connections", "variables_prefix": null, "profile_name": "default"}
Storing and Retrieving Connections
If you have set ``connections_prefix`` as ``/airflow/connections``, then for a connection id of ``smtp_default``,
you would want to store your connection at ``/airflow/connections/smtp_default``.
Optionally you can supply a profile name to reference aws profile, e.g. defined in ``~/.aws/config``.
The value of the SSM parameter must be the :ref:`connection URI representation <generating_connection_uri>`
of the connection object.
In some cases, URI's you will need stored in Secrets Manager may not be intuitive, for example when using HTTP / HTTPS or SPARK, you may need URI's that will look like this:
.. code-block:: ini
This is a known situation, where schema and protocol parts of the URI are independent and in some cases, need to be specified explicitly.
See Github issue `#10256 <>`__ and `#10913 <>`__ for more detailed discussion that led to this documentation update. This may get resolved in the future.
Storing and Retrieving Variables
If you have set ``variables_prefix`` as ``/airflow/variables``, then for an Variable key of ``hello``,
you would want to store your Variable at ``/airflow/variables/hello``.
Optionally you can supply a profile name to reference aws profile, e.g. defined in ``~/.aws/config``.
