Secret.arnstringThe Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the secret.
Secret.createdAtnumberThe date and time (timestamp) when a secret was created.
Secret.lastAccessDatenumberThe last date that this secret was accessed. This value is truncated to midnight of the date and therefore shows only the date, not the time.

Secret.tagsArray<{“key”: “value”}>The list of user-defined tags associated with the secret.
