Update entity class in ASP.NET Core Entity Framework

asp.net-core c# entity-framework-core


I have created the model from existing database using Entity Framework in ASP.NET Core.

Here is the model of the Market table

public partial class Market
        public Guid MarketId { get; set; }
        public string City { get; set; }
        public string CityF { get; set; }
        public string Name { get; set; }
        public string NameF { get; set; }
        public int SortOrder { get; set; }
        public bool IsActive { get; set; }

However, I have change the MarketId datatype to int in the database. Now I want to update the model.

Found some link but this link create the entire model again https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/ef/core/get-started/aspnetcore/existing-db

How can I update the model without the creating new model and using the connection string in appsettings.json?

Accepted Answer

To Update entire dbcontext use the below command. link for more details

"Build failed" on Database First Scaffold-DbContext

Scaffold-DbContext -Connection "Server=(local);Database=DefenderRRCart;Integrated Security=True;Trusted_Connection=True;" -Provider Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore.SqlServer -OutputDir RRStoreContext.Models -context RRStoreContext -Project RR.DataAccess -force

To update from Azure Connection and local Connection

Scaffold-DbContext "Server=<Server Name>,1433;Initial Catalog=<Database Name>;Persist Security Info=False;User ID=<user id>;Password=<password>;MultipleActiveResultSets=False;Encrypt=True;TrustServerCertificate=False;Connection Timeout=30;" Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore.SqlServer -OutputDir Entity -context <Context Name> -Project <project Name> -force

To create the new Context

Scaffold-DbContext "Server=<Server Name>,1433;Initial Catalog=<Database Name>;Persist Security Info=False;
        User ID=<User Id>;Password=<Password>;MultipleActiveResultSets=False;Encrypt=True;TrustServerCertificate=False;Connection
        Timeout=30;" Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore.SqlServer -OutputDir <Dir Name>

One option is-

You can use Scaffold-DbContext command with -force flag. This way you can force scaffolding to overwrite existing model files.

sample command -

Scaffold-DbContext "<ConnectionString>" Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore.SqlServer -t <tablename> -f

Replace ConnectionString & TableName as per your requirements.
