[Solved] How to set up a variable in .env file and using it in a .conf file

Geralt Asks: How to set up a variable in .env file and using it in a .conf file
I have a .conf file that has a label and variable that I’m trying to move to a .env file. How can I accomplish this?

This is what I have in my .conf file

[[inputs.snmp]] #Label
    agents = ["","",""] #Variable
    version = 2 #Variable

I’m trying to have something like this in the .env file

VAR_FOR_CONF_FILE='[[inputs.snmp]]n    agents= ["","",""]n    version=2'

I was hoping I could use $VAR_FOR_CONF_FILE in my .conf file instead of [[inputs.snmp]]agents = ["","",""]

but I keep getting this error Error parsing data: line 7: invalid TOML syntax for $VAR_FOR_CONF_FILE (Im not sure if I’m getting this error because I have the syntax wrong in my .env file or I’m declaring $VAR_FOR_CONF_FILE incorrectly in my .conf file)

Am I doing it incorrectly (or is it even possible to do what I’m trying to accomplish)?

(Note: I’m trying to accomplish this so I can simply use $VAR_FOR_CONF_FILE instead of hard coding things in the .conf file)
