Hello, I'm trying to pass certain variables to my Flyte workers (for example, data warehouse credentials, among others). I need to pass these variables as environment variables to my workflows. How can I achieve this? Can't figure it out from the documentation. Thanks

We prefer that you use secrets. Env variables can be passed to but that is not secure

Thanks for the help. I created secrets with:
kubectl create secret -n <project>-<domain> <secret-name> --from-literal=<KEY1>=<VAL1> --from-literal=<KEY2>=<VAL2>
. Using
kubectl get -n <project>-<domain> secrets/<secret-name>
I can see the secret was created successfully with the correct values. But upon including them on my task, e.g. :
Copy code
@task(secret_requests=[Secret(group=<secret-name>, key=<KEY1>)])
def task1...
i get a
max number of system retry attempts [11/10] exausted...
, am I doing something incorrect here?

I think the pod does not even launch in the first place.
