    Each region has a unique endpoint for create, update, and list operations for secrets. This endpoint is referred to as the control plane URL or secret management endpoint. Each region also has a unique endpoint for operations related to retrieving secret contents. This endpoint is known as the data plane URL or the secret retrieval endpoint. For regional endpoints, see the API Documentation.
