Important

We strongly discourage the use of PLAINTEXT environment variables to store sensitive values, especially AWS secret key IDs and secret access keys. PLAINTEXT environment variables can be displayed in plain text using the AWS CodeBuild console and the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI). For sensitive values, we recommend you use an environment variable of type PARAMETER_STORE or SECRETS_MANAGER.

  • PARAMETER_STORE: An environment variable stored in Amazon EC2 Systems Manager Parameter Store. To learn how to specify a parameter store environment variable, see env/parameter-store in the AWS CodeBuild User Guide.

  • PLAINTEXT: An environment variable in plain text format. This is the default value.

  • SECRETS_MANAGER: An environment variable stored in AWS Secrets Manager. To learn how to specify a secrets manager environment variable, see env/secrets-manager in the AWS CodeBuild User Guide.
