A project houses environment variables for an application.
The dashboard page is where you can manage environment variables for a given project.
Environment variables can be added or removed from a project. By default, they are pre-populated in your first project for demonstration. For any subsequent project, it can be convenient to import existing environment variables by dragging and dropping a .env file containing them.
Here’s what dragging and dropping a .env looks like:
In most cases, environment variables belong to specific environments: development, staging, testing, and production. You can input environment variables for each environment that your project uses.
Every environment variable value can be overridden with a custom value.
- An overridden value can only be read and accessed by the user that overrode the original shared value.
- A (default) shared value can be read and accessed by other users in a project.
You can turn overrides on/off by toggling the override/branch icon:
You can search for any environment variable by its key.
You can hide or un-hide the values of your environment variables. By default, the values are hidden for your privacy.
Download as .env
