Secret name and description - AWS Secrets Manager

Secret name and description

Provide a name for the secret. The name can include a path with / characters to enable you to logically group your secrets. This makes performing some operations easier, such as setting permissions, by enabling you to reference all of the secrets in a path with strings like “/pathname/*”. You must include the path in any reference to the secret, including those made by your users and client apps.

A clear description is always helpful in remembering what a particular secret was intended for long after it was created.
