How do I authenticate rclone via environment variables?

What is the problem you are having with rclone

I want to use rclone with credentials passed to it via environment variables. I am unable to find this in the documentation.

Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.

rclone v1.65.0

  • os/version: darwin 12.7.2 (64 bit)
  • os/kernel: 21.6.0 (x86_64)
  • os/type: darwin
  • os/arch: amd64
  • go/version: go1.21.5
  • go/linking: dynamic
  • go/tags: noselfupdate

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)


The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

rclone purge MyDestination:/SubName 

Please run 'rclone config redacted' and share the full output. If you get command not found, please make sure to update rclone.

type = b2
account = XXX
key = XXX
hard_delete = true

A log from the command that you were trying to run with the -vv flag

Not applicable. The command works when using the config file, I just want to use account and key via environment variables

welcome to the forum,

yes, my backup script does that.
the benefit, no need for the rclone config file.
