I have three projects in my solution.
BaseApp.Data - which holds my DBContext.
BaseApp.Data.ProjectMigration - which holds all migration files (depends on
BaseApp.Web - web application with Startup class.
I added my first migration like this:
dnx ef migrations add Initial -p BaseApp.Data.ProjectMigration
After this command the Migrations folder appears with all corresponding files in
BaseApp.Data.ProjectMigration. So everything is ok so far.
Than I try to apply migrations:
dnx ef database update
After this command the database is created, but no migrations applied. I also tried
dnx ef database update -p BaseApp.Data.ProjectMigration
with same result. Also next command returns "No migrations were found".
dnx ef migrations list -p BaseApp.Data.ProjectMigration
Also if I add migrations to
BaseApp.Data then everything works fine. The next commands work as expected:
dnx ef migrations add Initial -p BaseApp.Data dnx ef database update
So is it possible to hold migration files not in DBContext project?
You'll also need to set your migrations assembly.
