Convox applications are configured using environment variables. Environment variables must be specified both at the individual service level or on the application level for all services, for more information see the convox.yml reference.


The required environment variables for your service are defined like this:

    build: .
      - FOO=bar
      - BAZ

In this example the FOO variable has a default value of bar and the BAZ variable must be defined before the application can be deployed.

Only environment variables that are listed will be provided to the service at runtime.

You can provide all available environment variables to a service by specifying - "*"
