Hello, I successfully deployed a Strapi app to Render and seems to be working well. However, while testing the deployed app via Stapi, I notice that I am unable to upload images.
In the log I can see a message:
error: Must supply api_key, But I entered all the required info needed for Cloudinary to work. Can you help debug it?

Thanks for reaching out.
Sounds like you’re on the right lines, probably best to double-check any environment variables you’ve set and that they are named correctly, and that the value is also valid. Along with checking the code that references the values is correct/no typos.
Hope that helps
Thank you so much for your timely response. I sincerely appreciate your prompt reply. I double-checked the environment variable names and values, and they seemed to be entered correctly (please refer to the attached image). Although I noticed that render prefixed all the cloudinary keys with
process.env - Perhaps this might be the cause of the issue, would you agree, should I just rename them as “CLOUDINARY_NAME” instead rather than “process.env.CLOUDINARY_NAME” ?
process.env is how Node reads an environment variable. In the Render Dashboard, you’d just use the var name:
Which would then be accessed in Node as:
Thanks again for your response. That solves the issue.
