Hello,
At present, I have placed the csv file (Which holds the connections to each of the servers) into the blobstorage account.
ADF reads this file and proceeds accordingly...
Question:
1-
Do you think it is ok to have this file in the blobstorage account and whenever it needs updating, the the .csv is updated and placed into the DevOps to maintain the history
OR
2-
Do you think it is best for the ADF to read this file direct from DevOps?

Thank you

    Hello @ asked,
    Thanks for the ask and using Microsoft Q&A platform .

    I could recommend you to use Azure key vault for keeping the secrets / connectionstrings , it does keep the history and also you control the access . The "ease of using" which you are pointing to in #1 is there with AKV also ( unl;ess you let me an scenario whch is not covered ) .

    for #2 are you suggesting to that you are going to checkin a file with the connection string in ADO ? Please dont do that anyone having access to the ADO will have access to the secrets .

    Please do let me know how it goes .
    Thanks
    Himanshu
