I have defined a env variable named
GRPC_ADDR in CircleCI under the project settings. I want to use this variable while deploying with my app on a server using ssh. I use docker-compose to orchestrate my containers and
docker-compose depends on the
GRPC_ADDR. However, when the job executes
docker-compose can seem to find the env variable. Here is my CircleCI config:
jobs: deploy: machine: true steps: - add_ssh_keys: fingerprints: - #fingerprint here - run: name: Setup Environment Variables command: | echo "export GRPC_ADDR=$GRPC_ADDR" >> $BASH_ENV - run: name: Deploy over SSH command: | ssh $SSH_USER@$SERVER bash << EOF cd example-dir docker-compose stop; # stop the containers if they are runnning docker-compose up -d --build; #docker-compose can't find env variable here EOF workflows: version: 2 build_and_deploy: jobs: - deploy
docker-compose gives me this warning as it can’t find the env variable
The GRPC_ADDR variable is not set. Defaulting to a blank string. . This leads my deployment to fail as that env variable is required.
So, how can I fix this issue?
Thanks in advance.
