Architectural Decision Records

Link Introduction

Welcome 👋 to the architecture knowledge base of VMware Secrets Manager.

You will find here all the Architecture Decision Records (ADR) of the project.

Link Definition and Purpose

Link Architectural Decision

An Architectural Decision (AD) is a software design choice that addresses a functional or non-functional requirement that is architecturally significant.

Link Architectural Decision Record

An Architectural Decision Record (ADR) captures a single AD, such as often done when writing personal notes or meeting minutes; the collection of ADRs created and maintained in a project constitutes its decision log.

An ADR is immutable: only its status can change (i.e., become deprecated or superseded). That way, you can become familiar with the whole project history just by reading its decision log in chronological order.

Moreover, maintaining this documentation aims at:

  • 🚀 Improving and speeding up the onboarding of a new team member.
  • 🔭 Avoiding blind acceptance/reversal of a past decision.
  • 🤝 Formalizing the decision process of the team.

Link Usage

This website is automatically updated after a change on the main branch of the project’s Git repository.

In fact, the developers manage this documentation directly with markdown files located next to their code, so it is more convenient for them to keep it up-to-date.
