Feature Request: fly command for busting credential caches #3896
continuing from #2924
What challenge are you facing?
when credential values are cached (either legitimate values or 'not found' responses, as per #3895), as expected, the new value is not recognized until the cache duration expires
when using a longer cache duration (e.g. 5 minutes or more), this makes it harder to update parameter values during pipeline development or manually performing credential rotations without lowering the cache duration
longer cache durations are useful when running multiple concourse clusters that target e.g. the same AWS SSM api (e.g. developers running local concourse stacks that use the same SSM account will want long cache durations to avoid causing throttling on SSM that could impact production. developers also need to change / update values frequently)
What would make this better?
a fly (api?) command for explicitly busting a credential (parameter) cache
ideally, the specific parameter (for
Are you interested in implementing this yourself?
