Connection strings defined in Azure Portal are not picked up



I came across the following post which addresses the same issue i am experiencing. I am currently on EPiServer.CMS.Core 8.11.0 but seems like this issue is not fixed or broken again.

I have added the appSetting as suggested in my web.config and also configured Azure portal by adding a "EPiServerDB" setting but its still picking up the connection string from my web.config file. 

Is there anything else i need to configure?

Do you have a separate connectionStrings.config file referred to from your web.config? I recall that could cause some issues.
