DocumentDB Account with Web App

Last updated: 04-12-2015

This template deploys a DocumentDB account, an App Service Plan, and creates a Web App in the App Service Plan. It also adds two Application settings to the Web App that reference the DocumentDB account endpoint. This way solutions deployed to the Web App can connect to the DocumentDB account endpoint using those settings.
