    Currently that is not possible but it is actually a good idea.

    Would you just want to store the password in an env-variable or also the username? Or rather the complete LDAP-URI?

    Currently for me, just the LDAP-URI will solve this. Thanks for the quick reply.

    I have deployed the a project in different envs (develop, staging, production) with different users.

    I won’t be able to do it right now, but will see how far I get over the weekend.

    Currently I’m thinking of 2 things:

    * using a special schema env:MY_ENV_VARIALBE_NAME in the ldap-URI field that will then use the value of the environment-variable MY_ENV_VARIALBE_NAME as LDAP-URI
    * Replacing %ENV:MY_ENV_VARIABLE_NAME% inside the LDAP-URI with the value of the environment-variable MY_ENV_VARIABLE_NAME

    SO you could then use one of the two approaches as flexible as you’d like.

    Would that be helpful?

    Great! Yes!
