CMS 12 Startup error - Missing blob connection string (Parameter 'connectionString')



When adding the services.AddCmsCloudPlatformSupport(configuration) to our Startup.cs, we are getting the following error:

Missing blob connection string (Parameter 'connectionString')

Any ideas what this is?

My guess is you are having this issue on your local environment? Here is an article that talks about utilizing that package on specific environments.

Also, make sure you have "EPiServerAzureBlobs" in the ConnectionStrings section of your appsettings when deploying to other environments.

Hope this helps.

One simple workaround is to do this

            if (!_webHostingEnvironment.IsDevelopment())


so you won't need blob storages and servicebus for local development
