Copy (or fallback) variables from one environment to the next

Loving the service so far — one thing I’ve noticed is that it’s more trouble than it should be to copy variable values from one environment (i.e., Development) to another (i.e., Production). Sometimes you need the same value in multiple environments.

As a bonus, it might be nice to fall back to the previous environment if something is missing.

Hey John,

I get where you’re coming from but this is a bit of a tricky one, as introducing functionality for copying values from one environment to another carries the risk of a developer accidentally making a value the same in different environments which could lead to unexpected behavior for an application.

If you wanted to avoid copying and pasting to each field, an option is to download an export of the secrets from one environment and import the contents of the export into other environments.

Just be sure to review the secret values before saving!
