The Curious Case of the Missing Azure Connection String
You’re new to Azure and you’re working on deploying your shiny new web application to Azure’s Website service. But you’re storing your web application in a public repository like GitHub, BitBucket or CodePlex. Currently, through any number of possible techniques, you have managed to keep your connection strings out of public view by not checking it in. Now you’re trying to figure out how to continue committing to your repository and deploy to Azure without having to commit your connection string just so Azure Websites can be aware of it. Sound familiar?
