This post is about enabling web.config transformation for deployment. Recently in one project I am working on I faced one issue. I had to enable some security configuration in the App Service - to remove Powered By header and Server header. These changes I did in the app service web.config. After another deployment it reverted back to default ASP.NET Core generated web.config file - when you execute the dotnet publish command - it will generated web.config file like this.
