I am accustomed to loading connections with env var script or CLI.
How do you recommend we do this with astronomer cloud? Or enterprise?
One complication with using env variables is that they won’t be accessible by a running instance until reboot. Does astronomer reboot the cluster when you save an env var? Also, env variables are pretty front and center in the astro web UI which is maybe a little uncomfortable for creds…
We can load connections in the airflow UI but that is very manual and error prone and would be a pain if you are spinning up new clusters with any regularity.
Perhaps CI / CD tools would help with this?
Perhaps they should be baked into the image?
What have other customers done and what do you recommend?
