Azure DevOps Pipelines

Learn how to easily manage environment variables for your Azure DevOps Pipelines.

This guide will show you how to use Doppler to provide secrets to pipelines in Azure DevOps.


Select Config

Using Doppler to manage your CI / CD secrets requires only a single DOPPLER_TOKEN variable to be stored in Azure DevOps, which is used by the Doppler CLI to fetch the latest version of your secrets during each job run.

We recommend you first migrate any existing pipeline variables from Azure DevOps to Doppler prior to updating your pipeline variables, with most customers opting to organize them under the Staging environment.

Service Tokens

Create a Doppler Service Token for the CI / CD config and copy it to your clipboard.

Then in Azure DevOps, go to your pipeline Variables > + (new variable) and add a new variable DOPPLER_TOKEN using the token content copied to the clipboard.

Your Azure DevOps pipeline will now be able to access all the secrets in that Doppler config on each job run.


Now, let's create a simple pipeline to show you how to access secrets from Doppler.

The first step is to install the Doppler CLI, then use doppler run to fetch the config secrets.

- master

  vmImage: ubuntu-latest

- script: |
    (curl -Ls --tlsv1.2 --proto "=https" --retry 3 || wget -t 3 -qO- | sudo sh -s -- --verify-signature
  displayName: 'Install Doppler'

- script: |
    doppler --token $(DOPPLER_TOKEN) run -- printenv | grep SECRET_NAME
  displayName: 'Print Secret "SECRET_NAME"'

Save the pipeline and run it. The Azure DevOps pipeline job shows the successful installation of the CLI and fetching of a secret.


Amazing Work!

Now you know how to configure Azure DevOps pipelines to fetch secrets from Doppler.
