Using OAuth2 with a Digital Ocean App deployment

Hey everyone, I have deployed the following GitHub repository using the App feature on Digital Ocean. The GitHub project uses OAuth2 for login.

When using the app feature, would I be able to use OAuth2 or is that something that only comes with Droplets?

I have to modify the OAuth2 client ID and secret ID in the Laravel .env file so I assume I would just need to add environment variables like this:


OAUTH_BASE= OAUTH_CLIENT=xxx (client ID) OAUTH_SECRET=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx(secret ID here)

Appreciate the help.

App Platform uses containers to deploy this means that the underlying FS is ephemeral so everytime there is a new deploy all changes are removed.

I would recommend setting these values as environment variables in the App itself. This can be done by going to the settings tab in your app where variables can be set for the entire app or you can select a component and set variables for just those components.

Here is our environment variable docs
