It’s also possible to just use any environment variable you want in the .cfg file.

e.g. Our config for this is…

sql_alchemy_conn = postgresql+psycopg2://$PG_USER_ME:$PG_PW_ME@ken-db-02/npdairflow

"Encrypt them in the airflow.cfg" may not be feasible.

Maybe you want to try using environment variables for these configuration items instead, which
addresses security concerns at some level.

These documentation pages below may be helpful:

Hi Team,

Is it possible to keep sql_alchemy_conn and ldap-bind_user passwords encrypted in the airflow.cfg?

Thank you.
