The YAML-defined variables are also set to all created service containers, thus allowing to fine tune them.
Variables can be defined on a global level, but also on a job level.

### User-defined variables (Secure Variables)
**This feature requires GitLab Runner 0.4.0 or higher**
GitLab CI allows you to define per-project **Secure Variables** that are set in build environment.
GitLab CI allows you to define per-project **Secure Variables** that are set in build environment.
The secure variables are stored out of the repository (the `.gitlab-ci.yml`).
The variables are securely passed to GitLab Runner and are available in build environment.
It's desired method to use them for storing passwords, secret keys or whatever you want.

### job variables
It is possible to define build variables using a `variables` keyword on a job
level. It works basically the same way like it's global-level equivalent but
allows you to define a job specific build variables.
When `variables` keyword is used on a job level, it can override global YAML
build variables and predefined variables.
Build variables priority is defined as follows:
* predefined variables
* global YAML variables
* job YAML variables
* secure variables
* trigger variables
### tags
`tags` is used to select specific Runners from the list of all Runners that are
