Environmental Variables are getting removed on each app update
Hey, so I’m having some issues keeping my env variables.
When I update my app.yaml file:
doctl apps update $APPID --spec .do/app.yaml
And then I log into my dashboard only to see the Web UI env variables are now gone. Each time I deploy, I need to re-input them.
What is the process here for keeping them? I can’t deploy my
.env file, because it’s not in version control. I don’t want to put my env variables into
app.yaml, because that does go into version control.
So I’m stuck here having to copy/paste them for 5 mins each time I change the app.
I think I’m doing something wrong here - any suggestions?
