On your application’s Settings page, you can find details about your application as well as manage settings like buildpacks, internal connections, and environment variables. This is also where you can delete your application.

Basic Details

This section shows the application name, GitHub repository and branch, data center location, and if automatic deployment is enabled or not.

You can change the GitHub repository or branch by clicking Edit details. If you change the branch or build environment, you must manually deploy your application again, which you can do on the Deployments page.

Build path: This defaults to the root folder, if you want to specify a build path, enter it here, this is useful if you have a monorepo.

Buildpacks

In this section, you can view and manage your application’s buildpacks. If you add or edit buildpacks, you must manually deploy your application again, which you can do on the Deployments page.

Internal Connections

In the Internal connections section, you can view and manage your application’s internal connections with databases or other applications hosted at Kinsta. Do not copy and paste your internal connection details into your environment variables. Click Add connection and select the option to Add environment variables to access the application. This will automatically populate the environment variables from the database or other application you’re connecting to.

If you add or remove a connection, you must manually deploy your application again, which you can do on the Deployments page.

Environment Variables

Environment variables feed your application information from outside of the running of the application. They typically set things like database connection details and API keys. For more details, see our Environment Variables guide.

If you add, edit, or remove environment variables, you must manually deploy your application again, which you can do on the Deployments page.

Delete Application

If you no longer need the application, click Delete application to completely remove it.
