astro deployment variable list

For a given Deployment on Astro, list its running environment variables in your terminal. To test these environment variables locally without having to manually copy them, you can also use this command to save them in a local .env file.

If an existing .env file already exists in your current directory, --save will append environment variables to the bottom of that file. It will not override or replace its contents. If .env does not exist, --save will create the file for you.

If an environment variable value is set as secret, the CLI will list only its key.

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:


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.
