Copy new appsettings.json to include in Azure DevOps publish

Copper Contributor

By using Azure DevOps build pipeline we want to copy a common "appsettings.production.json" from our solution into the ArtifactStagingDirectory before publishing the artifacts to the Azure container drop location.


The build pipelines is 

- DotNetCoreCLI@2 (build)

- CopyFiles@2

- DotNetCoreCLI@2 (publish with zip)


We can verify that the appsetting.production.json gets copied to the 

Build.SourcesDirectory - however once the artifact is zipped and dropped, the file is not included.


Isn't it possible to include a file into the SourcesDirectory before pushlishing with zip ?
