Private NPM repository credentials on DO App platform

I have a JS React app deployed on DO app platform.

I have a private repository as a dependency.

In my local setup, I do the following to authenticate:

npm set registry npm adduser --registry

When I deploy it fails to install the package due to missing authentication.

I would like to know how to add the credentials or the authentication token so that it authenticates when I deploy on the DO app platform.

Thank you for the support

Hi there,

I believe that you can define a NPM_TOKEN environment variable with your private repo token.

That should allow you to authenticate as normal.

There are a few more ways of defining your token as described here:

Let me know how it goes!
