You are indeed right. I tried zsh and bash and neither of those sources
`~/.profile`. Looks like we should update our guide.
Can you please create an upstream issue at
Just for the record, easiest solution to the problem will be probably to put the
environment variable to `~/.bashrc` (or `~/.zshrc`) -- depends what shell you are
Thank you for your interest in portal!
