Re: Environment variables not working when using systemd

Because systemd does not read environment files from .bashrc. It has its own way of getting environment files.

Have a look at the systemd unit file doc [1]. Look out for "Environment=" and "EnvironmentFile=" directives.

Another possibility would be to set the env vars systemwide (e.g. in /etc/environment) - this however is distribution-dependent.

Hi guys,

I have recently setup Airflow on a new VM with system integration. I have added some environment variables in my bash_rc file for airflow user. Now when I try to run a BashOperator by first starting airflow using `airflow webserver -D` and `airflow scheduler -D` it seem to have access to that environment variables.

But if I use `systemctl start airflow-webserver`, and run the same operator, there is no output for the same environment variables.

And I am unable to figure out why is that the case.
