I am receiving the following error when doing a subsequent deployment through doctl:
errors validating app spec; first error in field "envs.0.value": secret env value must not be encrypted before app is created
This is the command:
doctl apps create --upsert --spec app-spec.yml --wait --verbose
Here is the relevant section of the app-spec.yml file:
envs: - key: DISCORD_BOT_TOKEN scope: RUN_AND_BUILD_TIME type: SECRET value: <REDACTED>
I have tried multiple approaches (wondering if I did something wrong), and I am getting the error no matter what.
I have read the documentation and community questions, and it seems that I am doing this correctly. e.g. https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/how-to-use-environment-values-of-type-secret-on-following-submissions
As you make updates to your app spec, if you don’t intend to change those encrypted values, then you should just submit with the in-place encrypted values unchanged.
What is the correct approach to this? If there is an issue with the DOAP, is there a temporary workaround?
