How to connect a cloud SQL database to an Azure Web App Service
So the Mobile App service that was previously available to us on Azure is gone, that beautiful easy to setup service that helped us connect a SQL database to it, create tables so easily, and manage permissions, is not dead, sort of.
We can still do everything just as before, but the setup is a bit different. Ok, a lot different, if I’m being honest. The basic process is this:
Create an Azure SQL service
Create a Web App Service
Connect them through a connection string
Upload the backend code to the Web App Service with Continuous Integration
