As .NET Developer you probably know Visual Studio option “Copy to Output folder”, which can be set on ever project file.


Because .NET core (at least for now) uses Project.Json file to coordinate the build process of the project, this option has to be specified in the Project.Json file.

In the final version of .NET Core 1.0 this is an option of “buildOptions” called copyToOutput.

"buildOptions": {

    "emitEntryPoint": true,

    "copyToOutput": [ "credentials.json", “AnotherFile.xy” ]
