I was working with a remote API and I exported my API key so that I could have it available as an environment variable for my current shell session, as follows:
- export API_KEY=MY_API_KEY_HERE
However my workflow requires that at some point this env variable should be deleted, but I don’t want to log out and log in back again each time.
What is a good way to delete an environment variable?

What I usually do is to use the
unsetcommand. All that you need to do is to run the following:
If you are writing a script, for example, to check if this is working you could have the following check:
Or you could also use the
printenvcommand which would print all of your currently available environment variables.
Hope that this helps!
