GitLab CI / CD

Bring new features and workflows to how you manage GitLab CI/CD variables with Doppler.

In this guide, you'll learn how to use the Doppler CLI to inject secrets as environment variables into your scripts and commands.


You have a GitLab repository with permissions for viewing and modifying CI / CD job variables

Doppler Project

Create a Doppler Project with a custom GitLab environment.

Service Token

Create a Service Token for the GitLab environment to provide the Doppler CLI with read-only secrets access and copy the Service Token value.

In GitLab, go to Settings > CI/CD > Variables and create a new DOPPLER_TOKEN variable with the Service Token value.

Configure Pipeline

Update your .gitlab-ci.yml to install the Doppler CLI and use doppler run to inject secrets as environment variables into any script or command:

image: ubuntu

  stage: build
    - apt update && apt install -y curl gnupg
    - curl -Ls --tlsv1.2 --proto "=https" --retry 3 | sh
    - doppler run -- ./bin/


Amazing Work!

Now you know how to configure GitLab CI / CD jobs to fetch secrets from Doppler.
