Install and run Jenkins in Openshift is easy, but where do you store your secrets, tokens or other sensitive data for use in your Jenkins pipelines.

Most of the time, when reading documentation, everything seems clear how to implement a particular piece of software. In some cases it can be very time consuming which I found out during the implementation of the Slack plugin in the OpenShift Jenkins (Ephemeral) version.
