Variables with non-alphanumeric characters

I have a variable setup on a project which includes a non-alpha numeric character: “GoogleAnalytics.Account”.
This works well during config transforms - appSettings\GoogleAnalytics.Account is correctly updated.
But it is not being passed to my Deploy.ps1 script.
I would’ve expected to be able to use it as ${GoogleAnalytics.Account} but it is always null.

Hi Jason,

It will come through as:




I didn’t know about the ${GoogleAnalytics.Account} syntax, I’ll add support for that in future.


Nice one. Thanks Paul
