AWS Secrets Manager now enables you to search secrets based on attributes such as secret name, description, tag keys, and tag values. With this launch, you can easily identify, arrange, and manage your secrets in to logical groups that are used by specific applications, departments, or employees. You can use this functionality through the Secrets Manager console or the List Secrets API to quickly find a subset of all your secrets managed in AWS Secrets Manager. 

AWS Secrets Manager enables you to retrieve and manage secrets such as database credentials and API keys throughout their lifecycle. AWS Secrets Manager also makes it easier to follow the security best practice of using short-term secrets by rotating secrets safely on a schedule that you determine. For example, you can configure Secrets Manager to rotate a database credential daily, turning a typical, long-term secret in to a short-term secret that is rotated automatically. For a list of regions where Secrets Manager is available, see the AWS Region table.
