PowerApps Build Tools Enable ConnectionString

Hi, Could you enable the use of a connectionstring? 

Now we have to create these connections, I want to use credentials stored in KeyVault and not have them in 2 places. 

We now use the WaelHamze.xrm-ci-framework-build-tasks, and build the connection string in our release pipeline through concattenating the secrets from keyvault. This way we are more flexibile when adding another destination to deploy to.

When you have any questions feel free to contact me.

Is this on any roadmap, @Mikkelsen2000 ?

The "Generic" service connection is still too lame when it comes to anything except username/password authentication, which MS discourages...

YES - 100% agree it is too lame and will updated this spring. We've been focusing on the Service Principals support but the two things will roll out together

Longing for spring.... just hope it is not Australian spring.

Service Principal is even better, connection strings are messy.


Keep it up!!
