I was wondering if there is a way to place the database connection strings that are used in the db outputs in an external variable file. so that if the environemnt that I am using to test a web app with a db changes then I only need to change the connection string in the external file. Is this possible?
This is very much possible... you can create an environment variable for connection string... and when ever the connection string changes you can create the new environment varible and use that variable or just change the string in the existing variable.
