NAME

       Sys::Virt::Secret - Represent & manage a libvirt secret

DESCRIPTION

       The "Sys::Virt::Secret" module represents a secret managed by the virtual machine monitor.

METHODS

       my $uuid = $sec->get_uuid()
           Returns a 16 byte long string containing the raw globally unique identifier (UUID) for
           the secret.

       my $uuid = $sec->get_uuid_string()
           Returns a printable string representation of the raw UUID, in the format
           'XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXXXXXX'.

       my $type = $sec->get_usage_type()
           Returns the usage type of this secret. The usage type determines the format of the
           unique identifier for this secret.

       my $id = $sec->get_usage_id()
           Returns the identifier of the object with which the secret is to be used. For secrets
           with a usage type of volume, the identifier is the fully qualfied path.

       my $xml = $sec->get_xml_description()
           Returns an XML document containing a complete description of the secret's
           configuration

       $sec->undefine()
           Remove the configuration associated with a secret previously defined with the
           "define_secret" method in Sys::Virt.

       $bytes = $sec->get_value()
           Returns the raw bytes for the value of this secret, or undef if there is no value
           stored with the secret.

       $sec->set_value($bytes)
           Sets the value for the secret to be $bytes.

CONSTANTS

       This section documents constants that are used with various APIs described above

   SECRET USAGE TYPE
       The following constants refer to the different usage types

       Sys::Virt::Secret::USAGE_TYPE_NONE
           The constant for secrets which are not assigned for use with a particular object

       Sys::Virt::Secret::USAGE_TYPE_VOLUME
           The constant for secrets which are to be used for storage volume encryption. The usage
           ID for secrets will refer to the fully qualified volume path.

       Sys::Virt::Secret::USAGE_TYPE_CEPH
           The constant for secrets which are to be used for authenticating to CEPH storage
           volumes. The usage ID for secrets will refer to the server name.

       Sys::Virt::Secret::USAGE_TYPE_ISCSI
           The constant for secrets which are to be used for authenticating to iSCSI storage
           volumes. The usage ID for secrets will refer to the server name.

       Sys::Virt::Secret::USAGE_TYPE_TLS
           The constant for secrets which are to be used for authenticating for the TLS
           environment. The usage ID for the secret can be any name. The UUID for the secret will
           be used by the hypervisor to fetch the secret value.

   LIST FILTERING
       The following constants are used to filter object lists

       Sys::Virt::Secret::LIST_EPHEMERAL
           Include any secrets marked as ephemeral

       Sys::Virt::Secret::LIST_NO_EPHEMERAL
           Include any secrets not marked as ephemeral

       Sys::Virt::Secret::LIST_PRIVATE
           Include any secrets marked as private

       Sys::Virt::Secret::LIST_NO_PRIVATE
           Include any secrets not marked as private

   EVENT ID CONSTANTS
       Sys::Virt::Secret::EVENT_ID_LIFECYCLE
           Secret lifecycle events

       Sys::Virt::Secret::EVENT_ID_VALUE_CHANGED
           Secret value change events

   LIFECYCLE CHANGE EVENTS
       The following constants allow secret lifecycle change events to be interpreted. The events
       contain both a state change, and a reason though the reason is currently unused.

       Sys::Virt::Secret::EVENT_DEFINED
           Indicates that a persistent configuration has been defined for the secret.

       Sys::Virt::Secret::EVENT_UNDEFINED
           The persistent configuration has gone away
