Rails 5.2: GCP deployment fails after starting to use the new encrypted credentials feature

Hello, I’m facing quite a strange issue with GCP (Google Cloud Platform) deployments.
I’ve recently updating my Ruby on Rails application to 5.2 (was 5.1.4 previously) and I started using the the encrypted credentials feature (which I believe is amazing, to be honest), but it looks like GCP is not that happy with it.

Here is the traceback that I receive.
Started cloud_sql_proxy.

``

The first error (DSN not set) is most likely coming from Sentry, although the DSN was added to the encrypted credentials file and Sentry if configured correctly.

config.dsn = Rails.application.credentials.dig(:sentry, :staging, :raven_dsn)

``

Second error (Cannot load Rails.application.database_configuration) makes me think that it’s something related to database.yml, which works just fine in development and test environments.
default: &default
adapter: postgresql
encoding: unicode
pool: <%= ENV.fetch(“RAILS_MAX_THREADS”) { 5 } %>
timeout: 5000

development:
<<: *default
database: gcpfive_development

test:
<<: *default
database: gcpfive_test

staging:
<<: *default
username: <%= Rails.application.credentials.dig(:gcsql, :staging, :username) %>
password: <%= Rails.application.credentials.dig(:gcsql, :staging, :password) %>
database: <%= Rails.application.credentials.dig(:gcsql, :staging, :database) %>
host: <%= Rails.application.credentials.dig(:gcsql, :staging, :host) %>

``

The third error (OpenSSL::Cipher::CipherError: key length too short) makes me think that maybe the master key is not found during the deploy and maybe that’s why it also can’t find the Sentry DSN?
Has anyone else encountered a similar issue?
