What is the right plugin patches environment to alter studio.yml?

I know that lms.yml can be altered with “lms-env”. What’s the correct thing to alter studio.yml? (I searched these forums and didn’t see anyone editing studio-env.)

@knoise it is cms-env

Thanks! That was my guess, but I was doing the steps here, which said to edit the studio.yml


and I made a plugin like this:

name: YTAPI_Plugin
version: 0.1.0
lms-env: |
“YOUTUBE_API_KEY”: “Redacted

cms-env: |
  "YOUTUBE_API_KEY": "*Redacted*"

But I still couldn’t import video transcripts from YouTube, so I didn’t know if it was working or not.

Is there a place I can find the studio.yml to see that it got inserted properly?

The lms.env.json and cms.env.json files are located in $(tutor config printroot)/env/apps/openedx/config/

You may also need to patch openedx-cms-production-settings and add the following as well


I am not seeing it anywhere except in the openedx common.py and production.py

@regis, is this correct?

Yeah I found that through grepping (my change from the plugin went into there), but I’m specifically looking for the studio.yml mentioned on that Open edX page

@knoise studio.yml was replaced with cms.yml I believe in Juniper

Ah, I see. I guess the ReadTheDocs docs are just out of date then.

Exactly. You should open a PR to fix these docs :wink:

Submitted a PR for that page :smiley:

Scratch that, closed it. studio.yml is correct in the Native Install. Tutor is using cms.yml, sorry for the confusion.
