How to set environment variables?

You can modify the docker-compose.yml file to override environment variables. Please do not forget to change in main and worker services of docker-compose since the following variables might be used in both.

Environment Variables


The default values for some environment variables might be different in our development setup but following table shows the default values for docker-compose setup, which is the recommended way to run the application.


Please be careful with the ENCRYPTION_KEY and WEBHOOK_SECRET_KEY environment variables. They are used to encrypt your credentials from third-party services and verify webhook requests. If you change them, your existing connections and flows will not continue to work.
