State stores components
Dapr integrates with existing databases to provide apps with state management capabilities for CRUD operations, transactions and more. It also supports the configuration of multiple, named, state store components per application.
State stores are extensible and can be found in the components-contrib repo.

apiVersion: dapr.io/v1alpha1 kind: Component metadata: name: statestore namespace: default spec: type: state.<DATABASE> version: v1 metadata: - name: <KEY> value: <VALUE> - name: <KEY> value: <VALUE> ...

type field, and things like connection strings and other metadata are put in the
Even though metadata values can contain secrets in plain text, it is recommended you use a secret store.
