  • -e SYNC_DESTINATION The destination that the data should be backed up to (must be the same name as specified in .rclone.conf)
  • -e RCLONE_CONFIG_PASS If the rclone.conf is encrypted, specify the password here
  • -e SYNC_DESTINATION_SUBPATH If the data should be backed up to a subpath on the destionation (will automaticly be created if it does not exist)
  • -e CRON_SCHEDULE A custom cron schedule which will override the default value of: 0 (hourly)
  • -e SYNC_COMMAND A custom rclone command which will override the default value of: rclone sync /data $SYNC_DESTINATION:/$SYNC_DESTINATION_SUBPATH
