Resolvers are a variable syntax for executing zilla runtime functions that insert dynamic values into the zilla.yaml. Validation occurs before and after resolvers have been converted.


Environment Variables

The env resolver will read the specified environment variable from the host.

${{ env.<Env_Var_Name> }}

AWS Secrets Manager

The aws.secrets resolver can fetch an AWS Secrets Manager secret by its name (also called secretId) or its ARN.

${{ aws.secrets.<Secret_Name> }}
${{ aws.secrets.<Secret_ARN> }}

If the secret is a key/value or JSON object this resolver can fetch individual properties by appending a # with the property name.

${{ aws.secrets.<Secret_Name>#<JSON_Property_Name> }}
${{ aws.secrets.<Secret_ARN>#<JSON_Property_Name> }}
