Environment variables

Environment variables

From the Instance on the Side Navigation choose Settings -> Environment variables.

Environment variables are key/value pairs that contain any constant values your app needs and allow you to manage reusable configuration data.

Similar to variables, secrets also consist of a key-value pair, but the value itself is encrypted and not accessible for viewing.

Grouping of Variables

Variables and secrets are grouped based on their association with the application. They create separate lists for the Storefront or middleware application, as well as other additional applications created by the client.


Available actions for Environment Variables:

  • Add a variable
  • Edit a variable (with current value preview)
  • Delete a variable

Available actions for Secrets:

  • Add a secret (check the Variable is a secret checkbox when adding a variable)
  • Change the value (without viewing the current value)
  • Delete a secret
