Removing "WDP" from 'IIS Web Application Name" from parameters RRS feed

  • Question

  • User200697134 posted

    I've just created a WDP in VS 2010 and I've noticed that after creating the deployment package the "IIS Web Application Name" parameter is suffixed with "WDP" in the SetParameters.xml file.  For example, my application name is "Reporting" the SetParameter.xml is defined as:

      <setParameter name="IIS Web Application Name" value="Default Web Site/ReportingWDP" />

    Where is this coming from and is there a configuration setting to set the "IIS Web Application Name"?

    I can fix the problem by using TransformXML to replace the value attribute after the build is complete, but I'm wondering if there is a more straight forward way of setting that value.

    Please create your deployment package on your web application, and you can specify the IIS Web Application Name in project properties -> Package/Publish Web.

    I hope this can be helpful for you.
