Use variables in Soda Core

Use variables in your checks.yml file to resolve credentials in configuration files, or to define dynamic filters.

Use variables in checks.yml files with the following syntax and markers: ${VAR_NAME}

  • During a scan, variables resolve to environment variables, or you can specify variables in the scan command.
  • By default, the variable NOW is the scan creation time as a string in ISO8601 format. For example: 2022-03-01T08:13:04.940634
  • For consistency, best practice dictate that you use upper case for variable names, though you can use lower case if you wish.
