Environment Variables

Environment Variables provide another way to specify your credentials. This is the recommended method when scripting tasks or when creating Preview Environments.

The supported environment variables are:

  • OKTETO_TOKEN: Specifies the Personal Access Token or Admin Access Token to use (Required)
  • OKTETO_CONTEXT: Specifies the Okteto URL (Required)
  • OKTETO_NAMESPACE: Specifies the Namespace to use. If missing, it defaults to the Namespace of the current context (Optional)

You can use the .env file to store your credentials. See Okteto Variables to learn more.
