Environment FAQs

How can I change branch/environment names?

To change the default DataOps environment names (PROD, QA, and DEV), add the following variables to your project's variables.yml file and override the default names:

  DATAOPS_ENV_NAME_PROD: PROD
DATAOPS_ENV_NAME_QA: QA
DATAOPS_ENV_NAME_DEV: DEV

Also, ensure that any logic that uses these environment names is updated with the new names - particularly check dataops/snowflake/databases.template.yml

If you also wish to rename the branches in a DataOps project, set these additional variables with their new names (don't forget to rename the actual branches):

  DATAOPS_BRANCH_NAME_PROD: master
DATAOPS_BRANCH_NAME_QA: qa
DATAOPS_BRANCH_NAME_DEV: dev

We suggest that you only perform this change on a new project, renaming master first, then creating the other branches from it.
