Secret Variables format


#1

Hi

I cant use “user.name” as secret variable name, it says that is invalid but “USER_NAME” works, looks like it cant accept ‘.’ inside variable names.

Will be cool if it support it.

Variables set through the CircleCI website or in machine: environment are Bash environment variables. Bash does not allow periods as part of environment variable identifiers:

A word consisting only of alphanumeric characters and under‐
scores, and beginning with an alphabetic character or an under‐
score.
