Config Variables

You can use config vars to persist settings across the bot. It is a good practice to consolidate your configuration (e.g., API key) in one place for maintainability.

Configuration variables added in the settings-> configuration, as shown above, can be accessed using double braces from plugins (e.g., JSON API) in the following way:


Similarly, you can access them from code, in the following way:

exports.handler = (context, done) => {
    const token = context.config.API_TOKEN;
    // TODO:



  • Config var keys should use only alphanumeric characters and the underscore character (_).

  • Config var keys should not begin with a double underscore (__).
