Configuring Tasks for a Nomad Application

In this hands-on lab, you will be provided with a pre-configured Nomad cluster, that is running on a single instance in Developer mode. You will need to create a Nomad job file, and then edit the file, so that the environment variables will be shown in the running allocation once it has been submitted to Nomad.
