But how?

It is easier to use the ui to create secrets, but if you want to edit the json, you may do this:


Shouldn’t I put the secret name and values or something

It is saying make sure the data is valid

yes replace SECRET_NAME and SECRET_VALUE by your desired secret name and value.
I recommend learning how to use json before editing the raw values

If you created a secret in the ui, you can do:

const myToken = process.env.SECRET_NAME

replace SECRET_NAME with the name of the secret you created

Should I write it in front of console.log(process.env.MY_SECRET)

if you just need to print the secret, no reason to defined a constant for it
