Environment Variables

Grafbase supports the use of environment variables inside of the file schema.graphql.

Inside of your local grafbase folder you can create the file .env that contains the key/value pairs that match those used inside of your schema.

Here we can have a schema with the OIDC issuer URL set as an environment variable:

schema
  @auth(
    providers: [{ type: oidc, issuer: "{{ env.CLERK_ISSUER_URL }}" }]
    rules: [{ allow: private }]
  ) {
  query: Query
}

In production these will read from your Grafbase project settings, but locally you'll want to set these to read from your local grafbase/.env file:

CLERK_ISSUER_URL=https://...
