How Amazon AppFlow uses AWS Secrets Manager

Amazon AppFlow is a fully-managed integration service that enables you to securely exchange data between software as a service (SaaS) applications, such as Salesforce, and AWS services, such as Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) and Amazon Redshift.

In Amazon AppFlow, when you configure an SaaS application as a source or destination, you create a connection. This includes information required for connecting to the SaaS applications, such as authentication tokens, user names, and passwords. Amazon AppFlow stores your connection data in a Secrets Manager managed secret with the prefix appflow. The cost of storing the secret is included with the charge for Amazon AppFlow. For more information, see Data protection in Amazon AppFlow in the Amazon AppFlow User Guide.
