is easy and only takes a few minutes.

How is Doppler better than GitLab variables?

GitLab CI/CD variables are missing the secrets management features that greatly benefit development teams such as a Git-style activity log with rollback support, secrets referencing, dynamic secrets, and more.

Can the Doppler CLI be installed in any runner or executor?

Yes! Check out our CLI documentation which contains the installation commands for Debian/Ubuntu, Alpine, RedHat/CentOS, as well as a non-package manager shell script.

Can I trigger a GitLab CI/CD pipeline with Doppler Webhooks?

This isn't yet possible but we are redeveloping our current Webhooks into a much more powerful feature called Triggers which is slated for release in late 2022.

You can sign up to be notified once Triggers becomes generally available by emailing

Is it free to integrate GitLab with Doppler?

Doppler is free for up to 5 accounts on the developer plan an no credit card is required when signing up.

You can also start a free 7 day trial on our Team plan to unlock features such as user access controls, SAML SSO, and Slack activity notifications.
