Identity auto increment not applied on column c# entity-framework entity-framework-6


After the DB Migration when the tables were created in the Database, the Identity Auto-increment was not applied to the 'Id' Column whereas the Primary Key constraint was applied to it.
Following is the Model class code.

public class Subscription
    public string Id { get; set; }
    public string domainName { get; set; }
    public string articleID { get; set; }
    public string tld { get; set; }
    public string customerID { get; set; }
    public string customerName { get; set; }
    public string price { get; set; }
    public string nextBillDate { get; set; }


And following are the columns from the Table that was generated.

Can someone please help me with how to cleanly apply auto increment in 'Id' Column. I want it to have both the Primary key and the auto increment.

Edit: I changed the type of Id to int but still the auto-increment is not applied to it.Here's a screenshot.

It's type should be int to make it Identity:

public int Id { get; set; }

OK, after you change your Id from string to int and the problem still occurs, I recommend that you should delete your database(if you don't care about data) and delete your Migration file from Visual Studio as well. It is important for you to delete your migration file from program because sometimes it doesn't recognized all changes. Or, you can add this line of code by hand in your migration file(maybe not recommended, but if nothing helps, this will help):

identity: true

So, it should look something like this:

            c => new
                Id= c.Int(nullable: false, identity: true),
            .PrimaryKey(t => t.Id)
