Modify application variables and secrets

Codemagic allows you to fetch and modify application variables and secrets using the REST API. Note that the API works slightly differently depending on whether your application is configured to use the Workflow Editor or YAML configuration.

For the latter, variables and secrets are manually configured on the Environment variables tab in your application settings. These variables and secrets can be accessed in your configuration file across all workflows with the use of groups. Variables configured for the Workflow Editor are specific to one workflow.

Fetch variables

GET /apps/:id/variables

Based on the application id provided, returns the configured variables.

Example

curl -XGET -H 'x-auth-token: <API Token>' -H "Content-type: application/json" 'https://api.codemagic.io/apps/<app_id>/variables'

Response

Response for applications using codemagic.yaml
[
  {
    "group": "production",
    "id": "619e329e0ca5fe19c3780c74",
    "key": "FOO",
    "secure": true,
    "value": "[HIDDEN]"
  }
]
Response for applications using Workflow Editor
[
  {
    "id": "61b06dbe72d7ad0017679014", 
    "key": "FOO", 
    "secure": true, 
    "value": "[HIDDEN]", 
    "workflowId": "60f0520c4c8734015080d401", 
    "workflowName": "Default Workflow"
  }
]

Add new variable

POST /apps/:id/variables/

Parameters

NameTypeDescription
keystringRequired. Name of the variable.
valuestringRequired. Value of the variable. For binary data use base64 to encode the contents.
groupstringOptional. Required for applications using yaml configuration. Name of the group that the variable should be added to. If the group does not exist, it will be created.
workflowIdstringOptional. Required for applications using Workflow Editor. ID of the workflow that the variable should be added to.
securebooleanOptional. By default, the variable is encrypted. Set to false to not encrypt the newly added variable.

Example

curl -XPOST -H 'x-auth-token: <API TOKEN>' -H "Content-type: application/json" -d '{
    "key": "FOO",
    "value": "foobar",
    "group": "production",
    "secure": true
  }' 'https://api.codemagic.io/apps/<app_id>/variables'

Example of adding file variables

It is possible to pass text-based files to the cURL command with the help of CLI tools, such as sed or awk (which is used in the example below). These tools provide options to properly retain newlines, which are essential for some files (e.g. private keys) to function correctly.

FILE=$(awk 1 ORS='\\n' file_path)
curl -XPOST -H 'x-auth-token: <API TOKEN>' -H 'Content-Type: application/json;charset=utf-8' -d "{
    \"key\":\"FOO\",
    \"value\":\"$FILE\", 
    \"group\":\"production\", 
    \"secure\": true
    }" 'https://api.codemagic.io/apps/<app_id>/variables'

To add binary-based files (e.g. images), they need to be base64 encoded first before passing them to the value parameter as strings. Note that the values will have to be base64 decoded during the build so as to use them.

  "workflowName": "Default Workflow"
}

Parameters
