feature activation code using powershell does not pick appsettings values

This is a  very common scenario where , our deployment guides tend to be useless with automation just because features are activated well using UI in settings of site/site collection  , but fail using powershell.

Here is the solution to this :

using (SPWeb web = properties.Feature.Parent as SPWeb)
SPWebApplication webApp = web.Site.WebApplication;
Configuration config = WebConfigurationManager.OpenWebConfiguration("/", webApp.Name);
// App settings are retrieved this way

// Connection string settings are retrieved this way


Reference :

Read web.config on FeatureActivated event while activating Feature using PowerShell
