Deploying my web API changes NETWORK SERVICE permissions RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Every time I deploy my web API from Visual Studio 2015 to my Windows Server 2016 machine, and changes the permissions of the NETWORK SERVICE from read/write to read only. I have to manually go onto the server and change the permissions back to read/write. I need the NETWORK SERVICE to have write permissions so that it can log to our log file.

    I remember solving this issue a while back. There was something that had to be added to the publish profile but I can't remember what it was or where on google I found it.

    Can someone help refresh my memory?
