Kubernetes-Native secrets and web ui?

In https://blog.drone.io/drone-goes-kubernetes-native/ you say “Now your CI/CD Pipelines are translated into native Pods, Secrets, and Services.” How does this work? I create a secret in drone and it doesn’t show in kubectl get secret --all-namespaces.

I think from reading https://docs.drone.io/extend/secrets/kubernetes/ that this doesn’t have anything to do with the “secrets” in the UI, which is a shame.

Drone is runtime-agnostic. It works with multiple backends (Docker, Kubernetes, Nomad) and therefore has its own, internal secrets management implementation. You can use plugins to access secrets from external systems, defined through your yaml configuration, but these secrets are fetched at runtime (based on yaml) and are therefore not displayed in the user interface.
