  • Question

  • Twitter user @MaximRouiller asked the following question: "Let's say I want to store a part of my web.config in a blob storage under Azure. Would creating a custom ProviderBase work?"

  • Yes I did ask! 

    I know it was possible to store part of your config file (appSettings mostly) into a SQL Server database.

    I'm wondering if the same can be done in the cloud! Would satisfy some deployment scenario on multiple environment/subscriptions.

  • Hi,

     The same question is discussed in the below stackOverflow article, It talks about using Azure Table storage, with some links which should get you started.
     Let us know if this helps.

  • While it does sounds close it's very far away. 

    First he's talking about "an xml file". Not the Web.config per say which works very differently. 

    I'm talking about exporting whole sections of my web.config into a Blob Storage. If I were to move all of our application configuration out of the web.config, then this would make sense.

    Currently, it does not apply to my problem. I know how to read/write from Table/Blob Storage.

    Thanks anyway :)
