Additional Information

Each of your projects will get its own Fauna database. You can either create a new database or use an existing database from your Fauna account.

The admin key to the database will be stored as an encrypted environment variable named FAUNA_ADMIN_KEY.

The domain name will be stored as an environment variable named FAUNA_DB_DOMAIN. This determines the geographical Fauna Region group that your database will be located in.
