astro deployment airflow-variable create

Create Airflow variables on a Deployment. Airflow variables are stored in the Deployment's metadata database and appear in the Airflow UI.

Usage

astro deployment airflow-variable create
tip

This command is recommended for automated workflows. To run this command in an automated process such as a CI/CD pipeline, set the following OS-level environment variables in a way that the Astro CLI can access them:

  • ASTRONOMER_KEY_ID
  • ASTRONOMER_KEY_SECRET

After setting the variables, this command works for a Deployment without you having to manually authenticate to Astronomer. Astronomer recommends storing ASTRONOMER_KEY_SECRET as a secret before using it to programmatically update production-level Deployments.
