Doppler's Heroku integration is a great way for Heroku users to sync a config's secrets with a Heroku app's config vars. Syncing with Heroku also adds another layer of high availability for your service, as now Heroku will also have the latest copy of your secrets. Our Heroku integration is a standalone service, that does not require the use of the Doppler CLI. Setup is quick and takes less than 3 minutes.


  • You have an account setup at Heroku and have deployed some code

Import Secrets

Review Apps

Reserved secrets & Addons

Note that Doppler will not overwrite secrets from installed Heroku Addons, as well as the following secrets when syncing to Heroku:




Heroku app's id


Heroku app's name


Heroku app's current release created date


Heroku app's current release version


Heroku app's current release commit


Heroku app's current release description


Amazing Work!

Now you are all set up on Heroku. Every time you update your secrets in Doppler, we will automatically update them in your Heroku App.
