  • Just a comment on this:

    >When I used the tooling to add the container orchestration, the .dockerignore file that the tooling created lists .env files, so those won’t get accidentally pushed to your source control.

    .dockerignore has nothing to do with source control. This file tells docker what files to ignore when it creates the context for the docker build command. https://docs.docker.com/engine/reference/builder/

    You would still need to add .env to your .gitignore or whatever ignore your scc uses.

  • Hi Julie.

    In the Dockerfile, ConnectionStrings:MagsConnectionMssql did not work for me.

    I had to use ConnectionStrings__MagsConnectionMssql. This usage is documented here
