Deployment secrets can be used to inject sensitive configuration into your application environment.

How secrets work

Paperpsace secrets can be created and managed in the console. Secrets can contain sensitive information like access keys, tokens, etc. To reference these Paperspace secrets in your deployment spec, use the following syntax secret:mySecretValue.

How environment variables work

Create environment variables that can be accessed through your running deployment containers.

Users can pass environment variables into their deployment that can accessed by the container services running on the deployment replicas.

env: # container environment variables
- name: some-env
value: some-value
- name: secret-env
value: secret:mySecretEnv # stored as a project or team secret. Naming is arbitrary.

The value "some-value" and the Paperspace secret value stored as mySecretEnv will be accessible in your container application code under the name some-env and secret-env respectively.
