Mongocryptd.exe on Azure App Service


I am using automic client side field level encryption and it works for my local environment. When I deployed my application (website) on azure app service, I get “Exception starting mongocryptd process. Is mongocryptd on the system path” error. I had this issue with my local environment as well and I managed to get around it by updating my path variable. With app service being sever-less, how an I setup Client-Side Field Level Encryption (CSFLE)?


Turns out, the directory /site/deployments/tools is part of PATH variable and uploading mongocryptd.exe to this directory resolved the issue.
