Download the database

During the deployment of the Sitefinity CMS app, an Azure SQL Database server instance and database are created. The database connection string is kept in the Application settings in Azure portal. Because Sitefinity CMS needs to know explicitly that the database is hosted in Azure, the db type is defined in a special key, which is also kept in Application settings. It is deployed automatically during the Sitefinity CMS web app deployment process.
