Good point with the VCS! it‘s very important never commit credentials.

If you use a CI/CD tool like CircleCI or Jenkins you can store the credentials as environment variables so the Containers in the build process have access to them.

So yes for not local environments it‘s a good pattern to use the ENV variable.
