Official Doppler VS Code Extension

We heard you! The desire to edit your secrets where you edit your code has been a gap we'e wanted to fix for a while. Today we're super excited to release a big step forward with our Doppler VS Code Extension. You can now read and edit secrets directly from VS Code side by side with your code so you don’t have to interrupt your workflow. It’s available to everyone today for free!

Secret Visibility Types and Reveals

Secrets can now be assigned a visibility - un-masked, masked, or restricted - giving engineers greater control over how and where a secret can be accessed from in whatever way works best for them. Have a secret set to masked? Users are now able to click to reveal masked secrets in Doppler. This helps limit unnecessary secret reveals and improves auditing by only logging reads for secrets we're confident were seen by a user.

New Integrations Added

We’ve added two new integrations this month to our continuously expanding list. First is our new OAuth-based DigitalOcean App Platform sync integration. Now, you can sync secrets to the DigitalOcean app platform and services will automatically re-deploy.

Using Qovery? Sync Doppler secrets to Qovery applications, containers, or jobs with our new Qovery integration.
