I was wondering: why did you choose using Secret Manager (and all the hassle of key rotation) instead of going for IAM database authentication?

Hi Gert, That was a good question.
Actually due to limitations of IAM database authentication and requirement to implement on existing scenario where need to configure the password based authentication only. So choosen secret manager for securing purpose.

Ok, make sense. I would add this to the article because a lot of people seem to be unfamiliar with it. I think it adds value if you would add it and why you choose not to use it. Just my 2 cents of course ;-)
