You really should take the time to read the openly published documentation linked in my first post. The documentation explains several approaches for securing configuration data. It is up to you to learn the different options then pick an approach that
best fits your application security requirements.
My team uses source control. The last thing we want is leaking sensitive data like passwords into source control. We take advantage of user
secrets on our development machines and
environment variables on the server. This may or may not be a good solution for you. But, the first step is knowing your options.
