Using Parameter Context inheritance to combine Parameters
You can use Parameter Context inheritance to combine Parameters from different Parameter Providers within one Parameter Context.
It is good practice to create separate Parameter Providers for different sources, and then
compose the Parameter Contexts through inheritance. This allows sensitive parameters to originate
from a secrets manager, like HashiCorp Vault, and non-sensitive parameters to originate from
other sources like Environment Variables or the file system. In the following simple example, the
EnvironmentVariableParameterProvider contains non-sensitive Parameters and the
FileParameterProvider contains sensitive Parameters. Both Parameter Providers
are added as inherited contexts to a new Parameter Context, “Parameters”. For details on
inherited Parameter Contexts, see What is Parameter Context inheritance?.
The new Parameter Context inherits Parameters from both sources:
