Mounting a Secret into a Directory that Already Contains Files on an Image You Don't Control

Mounting a Secret into a Directory that Already Contains Files on an Image You Don't Control

In some situations you may want to mount a value from a Secret or ConfigMap as a file in a directory which contains files you'd rather not overwrite. For this, you can use a subPath when defining the volume mount. Lets assume we have a secret my-secret which contains a key ca_bundle.pem.
