This page includes instructions for upgrading the driver to the latest version.

helm upgrade csi-secrets-store secrets-store-csi-driver/secrets-store-csi-driver --namespace=NAMESPACE

Set NAMESPACE to the same namespace where the driver was originally installed, (i.e. kube-system)

If you are upgrading from one of the following versions there may be additional steps that you should take.

pre v1.0.0

Versions v1.0.0-rc.1 and later use the v1 version of the SecretProviderClass and SecretProviderClassPodStatus CustomResourceDefinitions. secrets-store.csi.x-k8s.io/v1alpha1 versioned CRDs will continue to work, but consider updating your YAMLs to secrets-store.csi.x-k8s.io/v1.

pre v0.3.0

The helm chart repository URL has changed to https://kubernetes-sigs.github.io/secrets-store-csi-driver/charts.

Run the following commands to update your Helm chart repositories:

helm repo rm secrets-store-csi-driver
helm repo add secrets-store-csi-driver https://kubernetes-sigs.github.io/secrets-store-csi-driver/charts
helm repo update

pre v0.1.0

NOTE: CustomResourceDefinitions (CRDs) have been moved from templates to crds directory in the helm charts. To manage the lifecycle of the CRDs during install/upgrade, helm pre-install and pre-upgrade hook has been added. This hook will create a pod that runs only on linux nodes and deploys the CRDs in the Kubernetes cluster.

In case there is an issue with these hooks we recommend backing up your SecretProviderClasses in case of any issues with the hooks:

kubectl get secretproviderclass -A -o yaml > spc-all-backup.yaml

The filtered watch feature is enabled by default in v0.1.0 (see #550). All existing nodePublishSecretRef Kubernetes Secrets used in volume mounts must have the secrets-store.csi.k8s.io/used=true label otherwise secret rotations will fail with failed to get node publish secret errors.

Label these Kubernetes Secrets by running:

kubectl label secret <node publish secret ref name> secrets-store.csi.k8s.io/used=true

pre v0.0.23

v0.0.23 sets syncSecret.enabled=false by default. This means the RBAC clusterrole and clusterrolebinding required for sync mounted content as Kubernetes secret will no longer be created by default as part of helm install/upgrade. If you’re using the driver to sync mounted content as Kubernetes secret, you’ll need to set syncSecret.enabled=true as part of helm install/upgrade.

pre v0.0.20

v0.0.20 removed support for non-gRPC based providers. Follow your provider documentation to upgrade providers to use gRPC before upgrading the driver to v0.0.20 or greater.

pre v0.0.18

v0.0.17 and earlier installed the driver to the default namespace when using the YAML based install. Newer versions of the driver YAML files install the driver to the kube-system namespace. After applying the new YAML files to your cluster run the following to clean up old resources:

kubectl delete daemonset csi-secrets-store --namespace=default
kubectl delete daemonset csi-secrets-store-windows --namespace=default
kubectl delete serviceaccount secrets-store-csi-driver --namespace=default

pre v0.0.12

The SecretProviderClass needs to be in the same namespace as the pod referencing it as of v0.0.12.

Defining driver configuration and provider-specific parameters to the CSI driver in pod.Spec[].Volumes has been deprecated in v0.0.12. It is now mandatory to use SecretProviderClass custom resource.
