Tips for setting up GCP Cloud Build.

Set Secret Env Variable for Cloud Build

This is an introduction to using environment variables that you don’t want to leak in Cloud Build.

# Create KeyRing
gcloud kms keyrings create [KEYRING NAME] \
--location=global \
--project=[PROJECT NAME]

# Create KEY (e.g. PASSWORD)
gcloud kms keys create PASSWORD \
--location=global \
--keyring=[KEYRING NAME] \
--purpose=encryption \
--project=[PROJECT NAME]

# Grant permission to Cloud Build service
gcloud kms keys add-iam-policy-binding \
DOCKER_USER_NAME --location=global --keyring=[KEYRING NAME] \
--member=serviceAccount:[ACCOUNT ID] \
--project=[PROJECT NAME] \

# Encript value
echo -n $PASSWORD | gcloud kms encrypt \
--plaintext-file=- \
--ciphertext-file=- \
--location=global \
--keyring=[KEYRING NAME] \
--project=[PROJECT NAME] \
--key=PASSWORD | base64
# return encripted value

Register the completed string in cloudbuild.yml.

- name: ''
entrypoint: 'bash'
secretEnv: ['PASSWORD']
- '-c'
- |
echo "Do something"

- kmsKeyName: projects/[PROJECT NAME]/locations/global/keyRings/[KEYRING NAME]/cryptoKeys/PASSWORD
