Customers in the Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) region operated by SINNET and the Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) region operated by NWCD can now use Amazon Secrets Manager to manage secrets such as database passwords and API keys needed to access their applications, services, and IT resources.  

Amazon Secrets Manager enables you to retrieve and manage secrets throughout their lifecycle. Amazon Secrets Manager also makes it easier to follow the security best practice of using short-term secrets by rotating secrets safely on a schedule that you determine. For example, you can configure Secrets Manager to rotate a database credential daily, turning a typical long-term secret in to a short-term secret that is rotated automatically.
