Do not read ConnectionString from SPContentDatabase

There is no reason to read the connection string of a SharePoint content database except if you want to read from the database which is not supported.

CheckId SPC030203
TypeName DoNotReadContentDatabaseConnectionString
Severity Error

Remove the statement for reading the property 'DatabaseConnectionString' from object 'SPDatabase'.

Reading the connection string is not forbidden but the rule assumes that the connection string is used to read from the SharePoint database which is not allowed.

To suppress this violation in managed code add the following attribute to the method which contains the instruction (available since SPCAF version v5.2). Learn more about SuppressMessage here.
